20 Aging In Place Ideas- LEED
Some time ago, here in Asheville, we developed a serious interest in The LEED for Neighborhood Development Program. What caught our attention? This program highlights “True Green” design.
It raises awareness of what can work for “boomers” who are planning for today and into the future. Tell me, tell me- what you think about this. I selected twenty (20) topics - and wonder...
1) Do you think the list hits many of the points you desire in terms of sustainable excellence?
2) How many of these items would you/your clients find attractive?
3) When investing in a lifelong home (aging-in-place) could incorporating some/all on the list promote quality of life-regardless of age or physical ability?
