SBL Series: The Ageless Home™ and Universal Design

Episode 124,  Nov 29, 2018, 07:00 AM

Valerie Jurik-Henry, Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS), joins us on the Art of Construction SBL Series to share why home-builders and architects need to be considering Ageless Housing concepts in their designs. From baby strollers to wheelchairs, shorter people to taller folk, houses serve the needs of many ages and abilities. Universal Design concepts like master bedrooms on the ground floor, open living spaces, and kitchens without upper cabinets benefit all walks of life. Building Ageless Homes™ not only adds convenience for the current homeowners but will also increase the resale value as the population ages and looks to buy homes with these features.
