Designed for Aging
Many new retirement developments are being "designed for aging." What does this mean? While baby boomers have every intention of staying active during their retirement years, living with design elements that make one's living space more accommodating is also a good idea. In homes designed for aging, the home has just one story. The path from the master bedroom to the bathroom is short, well-defined and well-lit. Door handles are levers instead of knobs. All thresholds are flush. Toilets are a few inches higher. Bathroom floors are made from a no-slip material. In a well-designed home, these are just a few of the features specifically incorporated for aging bodies.
