Whether you are helping with older parents or grandparents say at home longer – 89% of older Americans prefer to stay living in their homes as long as possible – or we are needing their homes to be their sanctuaries, this session focuses on the principles of universal design for aging and Well Home Design standards to create their dream homes. We’ll take a Peter Pan house (a home built for someone who is never going to age) and go room by room showing you how to make your home or your loved one’s home safe, how to address air care, green eco and sustainable design and the new trend in biophilic design to create healing spaces for a lifetime.
