2) Reduced operating costs
3) Health and productivity benefits
4) Higher perceived value and quality

"We all need to put our own minds to work on rethinking our own aging and view life’s second half as a time of renewal and meaning rather than a time to retreat from purposeful living... ."  Richard Ambrosius.

FUNCTIONAL, ACCESSIBLE, BEAUTIFUL




Self-assisted living

Stunning and functional. That’s what today’s boomer home owners request when planning self-assisted living.  

Asking "boomer" clients- who have planned ahead to live independently in their homes has given me a heads-up about the relationship between stunning, functional, and  “aging-in-place” –  The Sage Companion Project  asked- about the concept   - what is that all about?  We wanted to know--when the objective is "stunning and functional"- what Post 50 People  might recommend. Here's what we discovered:

1.  It  is a good idea to consult with a real estate Specialist and/or a Certified Aging In-Place Specialist (CAPS) when planning home remodeling projects. In fact, "boomers" who have planned ahead advise that it is a good idea to consult with experts regardless of age or physical ability - for every stage of life.

Creating spaces that can be used by people of all ages and abilities is central to the concept of universal design which focuses on beauty and functionality.

2.  The objective is seamlessly to incorporate accessibility features into a design plan for the home- before it becomes an emergency.  That way, the results are beautiful and work for all- from kids to grandparents.


3. Into deep maturity : Living at home safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age, income or ability level brings with it the pleasure of remaining in a familiar environment.  There is much to be said, on many levels, about the ability to enjoy familiar daily rituals and the special events that enrich all our lives. According to the National Association of Home Builders' research on trends--Post 50 adult home owners prefer (and plan) to stay in self-assisted living (age-in-place)  instead of making other housing accommodations.
