Interior Home Adaptation for Aging-In-Place

by Valerie Garrett                         1000505

Aging-In-Place (A-I-P) means remaining in your home and community as you age while remaining as independent as possible. When seniors are surveyed, they list remaining in their homes as their top priority. A-I-P and sustainable home design share much in common. Low-impact homes conserve water, energy and materials, have healthy air quality, lower carbon emissions, minimize waste, allow for household flexibility and frequently have space-efficient floor plans.

The United States Administration on Aging projects by 2030 the number of seniors 65 and older in the will be almost double what it was in 2000. The fastest growing segment of the population is those 85 and older. Whether building new or adapting an existing dwelling here are some interior upgrades to consider for your own home.

It's pure and simple "greenwashing," which Smalera defines as "the art of scoring an environmental touchdown simply by moving the goal posts."
