Aging in Place and Universal Design

From Sunbelt Pools:


Your home can maintain its beauty, its spirit and make a graceful transition into the golden years, just as we all hope and plan to do. Think you're too young to read on? Have just your parents in mind? Heard of "aging-in-place" but think it makes a home look "clinical"? Think again. Apply universal design principles to any current home renovation project and find yourself comfortable, independent and happy in your home, at every age.
"One of the keys to universal remodeling is to incorporate form with function," says Richard Hoffman, owner of Specialty Builders Remodeling (www.specialty-builders.net). "You don't have to build a big wooden ramp to the front door or install bulky grab bars." Not when beautifully graded landscaping and elegant towel holders designed to pull double duty between pleasing the eye and creating a safe environment can do the trick.
