A one of a kind project based on the concept of aging in place is in progress at the University of Missouri (MU). This project required legislation in 1999 and 2001 to be fully realized. A specialized home health agency was developed by the MU Sinclair School of Nursing specifically to help older adults age in place. In 2004, TigerPlace, a specially designed independent living environment, was built by Americare Corporation of Sikeston, Missouri, a leading long-term care company. TigerPlace was developed as a true partnership between the University of Missouri and Americare Corporation. This partnership allows for unique student and research projects.
