As people grow older the inevitable happens – mobility decreases and needs change. While people can’t always control what happens in life, they can control where and how they live. Age-in-Place design is a form of remodeling that makes sure homes accommodate the physical challenges people face as they age.
Talmadge Construction of Aptos, CA has released a free ebook titled “Age In Place: Living Comfortably and Safely at Home,” to educate homeowners about functional and creative age-in-place design options.
“Many homeowners and their family members are not aware of how simple changes to the home can allow older people to maintain a safe, comfortable place to live as their needs change,” says Jeff Talmadge, president and founder of Talmadge Construction. “We’ve assembled this ebook to educate people on the variety of creative and useful options that exist in the home.”
In 2015, 49% of those who remodeled their home cited the desire to stay in their current home as a top reason to renovate over buying a new home. The elderly population is expected to be nearly double by the year 2050. There is a growing need for US residents to modify their homes with age-in-place design considerations.
“We’re very proud of this ebook because it provides practical information about modifying one's home to counter common physical changes people experience such as diminished eyesight, hearing loss and common mobility struggles that limit even the most basic of accesses,” says Erin Loftin, lead designer at Talmadge Construction. “The ebook covers age-in-place considerations for each room and explains key design considerations that can give people independence at home well into their golden years.”
