This essential reference is a compilation of ideas, suggestions, and design solutions taken from a variety of experts in the field. The goal is to give homeowners increased independence, allowing them to envision and create their own future. Today, numerous homeowners are thoughtfully designing or redesigning their homes into living spaces that they will be able to enjoy and function in for many years to come. With a few modifications, a home can be made more accessible and friendly without losing its personal charm and designer's flair. Present modifications can set the stage for future changes, such as extra lighting, radiant heating, and energy conservation, along with the inclusion of assistive technology required as the body changes. In this well-illustrated book, with over 200 color photos, many architects and designers display a variety of architectural designs for "aging in place." The general concepts brought forward help to create flexible, personal space, highlighting solutions that can be utilized in multiple contexts. A Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS), Dr. Jill M. Bjerke explores many of these issues in the Foreword.
