Our recent blog 3 Steps For Senior Citizens to Safely Age in their Own Homes sparked quite a discussion on Facebook among older adults living independently. This inspired us to start a Facebook group called Independent Living it Up!
Join the community
The purpose of this group is to create a community where people who are living independently can share tips and tricks for aging in place, ask questions, or just enjoy each other’s company. Socialization is an important factor in living a long happy life and we thought it would be great for people to connect through this Facebook group.
Join the conversation
The types of conversations that we’ve been seeing on our posts themselves have included how to get up after a fall, challenges with aging in place, different dynamics with family members, privacy, and other issues that older adults face on a daily basis.
Independent Living it Up! is for these kinds of conversations where you can feel heard, supported, and understood. The goal is to make friends, have thoughtful discussions, and laugh.

CarePenguin is a sensor and app that non-invasively monitors the well-being of older adults living alone by detecting activity in a home through water use. If we detect a lack of activity, we send the adult child or caregiver a notification encouraging them to check in and make sure everything’s okay. CarePenguin is now available exclusively on our website. Give CarePenguin a try today!
