Aging In Place
The Center for Disease Control defines aging in place as "the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level."
Most people prefer to stay in their homes as long as possible. Unfortunately, their homes may not be aging as well as the occupants. With small changes, your bathroom, kitchen, lighting and flooring may be updated to keep you safely in your home.
The very things that make your bathroom safer and easier to navigate—large, walk-in showers; higher toilets; natural lighting—are also some of the latest design trends. You can conceal safety upgrades with good design and the latest innovations.
