What are the ideas of aging in place and Universal Design?
“Aging in Place”: means living in one’s home throughout one’s maturing years. It is important to be able to live in your home safely, independently, and comfortably – regardless of age. Universal design of a home is an important feature many people are considering when either purchasing a new custom home or remolding their current home.
