Universal Design: Making an “Age Friendly” Home @ Online
Jun 10 @ 6:30 pm
Universal Design: Making an "Age Friendly" Home @ Online

When it comes to “aging-in-place,” most people think it’s for older adults. But the principles of “aging-in-place” actually apply to all ages. From clearances and heights to lighting and handles, simple considerations make a home livable for everyone and contribute to comfort and safety. Homeowners quickly realize that products, technologies and systems introduced into the home really benefit every member of the family – not just older adults. Learn how the principles of “Universal Design” are more accurately viewed as “Lifespan Design” or “Design for All Ages” and how they can be applied to make any home a much more comfortable and safe environment for all.

“Universal Design: Making an “Age Friendly” Home” will explore the principles of design that can be introduced into any home.  The presentation will be held offered once in June:

Some options that will be covered are bathing, dressing and transporting the deceased, holding a vigil or wake with the body, handling paperwork, and arranging burial or cremation with or without the assistance of a funeral director.
