A growing number of workers in Virginia face the demand and challenges that often are associated with providing care for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or other memory problems.
According to AARP, 90% of older adults nationwide want to remain living in their homes for as long as possible, yet US Census data suggest that many homes may not be designed to accommodate the needs of aging homeowners. Specifically, older homes often include multi-story living, stepped entries, narrow doorways and hallways, second story bedrooms, and single bathrooms adjacent to the bedrooms, which make daily living challenging. Older homes are also likely to need repairs, modifications, and energy updates to meet the needs of older residents and remain habitable. In an effort to support aging in place, more information is needed about the homes of residents aged 50+.
