About Aging in Place
Recently the phrase “aging in place” has become a common reference. This refers to the practice of modifying a home to meet the needs of any home dwellers who have suffered from a catastrophic accident, suffering from a chronic disease, or seniors as they age, rather than moving to another residence because the home is not suitable. It can also refer to home improvement services for multi-generational families moving their aging parents or other relatives in with them to improve accessibility, safety and comfort. Aging in Place home modifications are used to solve these problems. They are carried out by a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS).
Along with aging in place, universal design is becoming more of a household term. Essentially, it’s about building or modifying places and spaces—both public and private—to accommodate people of all ages and abilities. More than just an architectural concept, universal design is a win-win for sandwich generation boomers caring for aging parents and their children at home, for grandparents raising grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and for all who are facing the challenges of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other chronic diseases.
Whether your family needs the support now or down the road, universal design features are a good long-term investment for the home itself.
