TRY THIS

Talk about, plan, design, and create a beautiful and  functional home designed for a today and tomorrow and keep it budget-friendly.





SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION AND EXCELLENCE- Many  people today (especially “boomers”) view sustainable excellence as a social imperative. With this in mind,  The Sage Companion Project  gathers data and at times, even turns it on its side for a new and more relevant perspective of the  50-plus years.

Looking back and looking forward, what is revealed?

A DESIGN FOR LIFE - As we enter into a conversation about places in which to thrive- regardless of age, physical ability or  income level, clearly the importance of a design for life and respect for the unique value of each person emerges. As a not-for-profit social enterprise, we are excited to be a small part in creating a new vision of aging.


AGING-IN-P A L A C E© -  "Whether it is at the entry, bed, bath,  in the kitchen or throughout an entire home, living comfortably and happily is a mutually attractive goal- regardless of physical ability or age.Universal design elements and age-friendly products in a home can help to achieve this goal -adding up to added performance and home value."

BUYING POWER AND INFLUENCE



SILVER SAGE- EDITOR'S  NOTE

The buying power of leading edge boomers and older adults is spectacular and affects market trends.

Universal design, where a beautiful and functional dwelling place designed for a lifetime is the objective and the desire of consumers, may well become the norm. What does this mean in terms of impact and changing aging perspectives and stereotypes now and into the future? For millions of consumers who desire a comfortable retirement, that is an all-important question.

Here is what I found out during a recent research assignment for The Sage Companion eZine.

In a nutshell

People who grew up in the 60s, who have tremendous buying power today, and who seek an active lifestyle will NOT choose to move to “retirement homes”, but instead prefer alternative solutions -"forever homes" where aging -in-place is the choice.
