The home-building industry expects that aging will be the second-biggest influence on home design in the next few years [source: NAHB]. A concept home received a coveted 2012 Best of 50+ Housing Award from the NAHB for a home that meets the physical needs and lifestyle of baby boomers.

It seems unlikely that members of the “Lucky Few” (1929-1945) and Baby Boomer (1946- 1964) generations will choose to move to “retirement homes.” The common dialogue these days reads more like this: “Please do not patronize us as “oldies” - because despite certain negative stereotypes about aging, we really are quite clear about our choices for a place to live for a lifetime."
