Aging in place, universal design, age-friendly communities - In case you haven't noticed, I've been writing a lot about this lately. I think it may be about "Timing"... . Since my hair turned silvery, I have to say - A Lifelong Home & Aging in Palace© has been more on my mind than in recent years. In fact, I’ve been so taken with the concept that I’ve written
an entire series on aging in place, universal design elements and age-friendly concepts and started a New Group for fellow older adults: the Aging In Place Group. Possibly (I hope) you find these “niche” posts of interest – especially if you have older family members who would (wouldn't you??)
prefer to stay at home rather than have to move to a nursing home. Hard just to think of being in a facility, much less actually being in a place you'd rather not call home, eh? If you are thinking you/family members/ clients might benefit from forward planning- consider aging in place AshevilleStyle.
Timing, a Lifelong Home and Aging in Palace©
Timing is everything, they tell me. For those of us who (like many surveyed in a recent AARP poll) prefer to arrange our own lifestyle, comforts, and eating times at home- the timing may be perfect. That is because almost 80 million boomers have a powerful voice in the marketplace. Trending moves in the direction of older adults choosing to stay home and innovation in product design and technology is on the rise.
A Good Heads-Up- a new vision of green
For real estate and related professionals that's a solid heads-up. Whether clients or your own family seeks this, professionals in the field (architects, builders, senior specialists and CAPS) tell me that universal design features are a good investment for today and tomorrow. I enjoy pointing out how this would "look and feel"- Think: No-step entry, Wide doorways and hallways, Mainfloor/One-floor living, EZ access to switches and controls, and Plenty of Natural Light.
