While we may not realize it, we are all aging every single day. If you don’t feel it, don’t worry, its a good thing. You want to stay young at heart, young in the mind, physically active. Recent surveys have shown that 95% of Americans prefer to age at home, rather than move into a retirement community or extended care facility. But as we age, eventually we all experience physical changes that make it necessary to make changes in our home.
The National Aging In Place Council’s website has recommendations for home improvements that make the home more accessible for an aging population. Home design changes for aging at home include: roll-in showers, h-held showers, grab bars, placement of electrical switches.At HB Building Design, we believe in creating functional beautiful living spaces.
