What It's About
We’re living longer than ever, but what good are extra years if we can’t get through our own front doors? Housing must meet the needs and preferences of a growing population of older adults and people with disabilities, so we can broaden our markets, repair and make use of already limited housing supply and meet the needs of multiple generations. The demand, appeal and benefits of incorporating aging-in-place and universal design principles has never been greater. Through storytelling, statistics, and entertaining video clips, identify the physical need, broad appeal and financial benefits of building, remodeling and marketing accessible homes. Get excited about the future of aging; it’s filled with innovations in living options, elegant design and enough medical and technological advances to make a future where everyone feels at home.
