  • Implementing Universal Design and Meeting the Needs of an Aging Population Course

    1 LU AIA

    This article is registered for 1 HSW hour with AIA and was originally published in the 2012 march-april print and digital editions of residential architect magazine. If you don't receive the print edition you can visit www.residentialarchitect.com to find the march-april 2012 digital edition. Over the next 20 years the majority of the U.S. population will be over age 55. As we age we need to re-evaluate our physical and mental capacities, and our ability to live independently. Homes outfitted to suit needs at age 45 could be significantly different than what is needed at age 65 and older. This article shows that successful aging in place requires careful planning and that home environments should provide continued enjoyment and stimulation, but should also accommodate changing needs and enhance the quality of life. Universal Design strategies will help you reshape the homes, and lives, of independent individuals who want to age in their homes, where they are most comfortable. Take the course.
