Is getting to stay at home as you age just a pipe dream? We think NOT!  So, the Sage Companion Project  collected materials for a Practical Guide for planning where and how to live  - regardless of age or physical ability. Here you can quickly refer to  talking points to use during conversation about all-inclusive homes that can work through the years.

As more and more Post50 People demand sustainable excellence, so we influence design innovation. The result can be comfortable "Feathered-Nests" -- now, and for years to come.Yes,  there are so many good lifestyle choices. But if yours is to control your own destiny AT HOME , read on for talking points to start the conversation and a new vision of "aging-in-place" ... .






THE TALKING POINTS



eBook1 ~ Home Re-Imagined



cost-effective plans and
ways to talk about, organize for
, design and create
sustainable excellence 

in a 

beautiful and  functional

ALL-INCLUSIVE HOME
designed for a lifetime




Begin the discussion that can lead to planning a place to live
by answering questions such as:


1. Do you have a friend or relative who might feel more comfortable visiting you if your home were more accessible?

2. Do you know how to figure out cost-effective ways to plan and make happen a home that not only functions well, but is also really beautiful?

3. Wouldn't it be nice if we could stay in our homes (age-in-place) instead of needing to settle for costly and impersonal alternatives?






KNOCK-KNOCK!




eBook1


KNOCK-KNOCK. WHO'S THERE?

Eighty (80%)percent of Post-50-People  report that
they prefer live in their own homes.


In planning for their own independence-- sustainable excellence-- it seems that the majority of Post-50-People, and "Boomers" (1946- 1964)  are interested in and are taking certain steps that can lead to  quality of life --today and into the future..

At The Sage Companion Project like this large group of older adults, we are drawn to the idea of  happiness  in self-assisted living.  As we discussed in an earlier segment, the first step might be to become familiar with the vocabulary of “aging-in-place” ... .

The desire to live in a home of  choice actually may change the way homes are designed.
