Living In Place - Accessibility Features

Rather than giving up their freedoms and privacy in the security of a nursing home, more and more adults are making the decision to remain in their own homes as they age. Another trend for this demographic is moving in with their adult children.

Various home features require special attention when designing for these situations including wheelchair accessible bathrooms and no-step entry options.
