Are you familiar with universal design? It’s a method of designing spaces that allows for safe, fulfilling use by people of different ages, physical abilities, and health status.
AARP is a proud partner in helping to educate the public on how you can make your home safer for you and your family as you age. ReVisions Resources leads our community-wide collaboration known as Designed for Life, which includes the San Diego Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers as a partner. Our next event, focused on lighting solutions, will take place on August 6th in San Diego.
As we age, hard-to-reach cabinet shelves, slippery floors, and poor lighting can cause accidents in the home – the top reason people are forced to leave their homes. With the right advice, you can learn how to modify your home functionally and aesthetically to continue with an active, independent lifestyle. With the cost of long-term care in San Diego conservatively estimated at $82,000 per year, adding aging in place design elements to your home makes economic sense. Take our quiz to see if your home is aging well and be sure to join us on August 6th!
