Aging in Place – Eliminating Pitfalls

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Like planning for retirement, many young people do not consider what they will need from their home as they age.

It is possible to remain at home as physical and / or mental deterioration makes doing so more challenging. Given the amount of research that preceded establishing design standards to accommodate the handicapped, new structures can be designed which are far more user friendly to the elderly. Changes to existing homes can also be made in incremental steps as needs arise, just not as efficiently as doing so from scratch.

The knowledge and technology to enable our elders to stay at home are well established. All that is lacking are finances to do so, the time to do so, the will to do so and wide-spread dissemination of knowledge on how to do so.

As a contractor, one way you can add value and help your customers see the big picture is by pointing out things they can incorporate into their home design NOW that will save them heartaches & headaches later in life while increasing the longevity of their home.

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • A thorough understanding of physical challenges that make aging-in-place more difficult.
  • An increased awareness of cognitive issues that make aging-in-place more difficult.
  • Resolvable issues faced by the elderly while navigating outside the home.
  • Changes in typical lighting strategies that are beneficial to an aging population.
  • Proper design of exterior amenities to facilitate increased enjoyment of nature by an older population.
  • The impacts of different choices in finishes in reducing dangers faced while aging-in-place.
  • Design choices that make common areas in multi-family housing more user friendly to the aged.
  • Changes in cabinetry needed to accommodate use by the handicapped
