The Center for Disease Control defines “aging in place” as the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level. Research conducted by AARP shows that 88% of Americans want to age in place, if you are part of that 88%, what accommodations have you made to prepare your home?

Some features of aging in place design include:

• Wheelchair roll under areas
• Pull out work surfaces
• Lowered countertops and stoves
• Tilted bathroom mirrors
• Shower benches
• Hand held shower fixtures
• Grab bars and handrails
• Wheelchair ramps
