Concerned that getting older will affect your ability to remain in your home? How do you adapt for multi-generational living arrangements? Changes in mobility, eyesight, hearing, family size and composition are challenging enough. This lecture and interactive workshop will teach design strategies to help make your home more accessible, adaptable, and flexible for occupants of all ages.
Discussion topics will include: principles of universal design, accessible kitchen and bathroom design, critical design dimensions, and tips and resources to make it look beautiful, not medicinal.
