So, what exactly is Aging in Place Design?
In the simplest terms, Aging in Place Design is "retirement planning" for your home!
This means planning ahead and making adaptations to your home, or even building a new one, with an eye on the future. Aging in Place planning ensures that as physical capacity diminishes naturally over time, your home will continue to accommodate you comfortably and safely.
Aging in Place incorporates the concept of Universal Design which offers design solutions that work for nearly everyone, of all sizes, shapes, ages and abilities.Universal Design is becoming increasingly popular because we now realize the need for homes that will grow old with us. People are living longer and more of us are living with some type of disablity.
