In this blog post, LuxStone™ of Colorado by HomePride, one of the top walk-in bath companies in our local area discusses the common barriers to implementing aging in place features.

Accessibility

Our ability to accomplish daily tasks tends to diminish with age because of a variety of health issues. Unfortunately, the typical home is not designed with accessibility in mind. Your home will need to be modified in order for you to have easier access to everyday tasks, objects and locations. We recommend working with an experienced home remodeler because they can make suggestions on how to best make your home more accessible.

House Design

There can be a lack of proper planning at a community level for multigenerational or intergenerational homes. There are not enough homes that are built using Universal Design principles. Universal design features accommodate people of all ages and abilities, and they can make life much easier and more comfortable for seniors.
