Create accessible living environments for seniors.
Aging in place is becoming a popular option for seniors who want to maintain their independence. However, many homes are not designed with accessibility in mind. The BlueDAG WayTM helps aging-in-place specialists bridge the gap.
More and more seniors are choosing to age in place.
Accessibility challenges make it difficult to live independently.
In recent years, the number of seniors who need accessibility accommodations in their homes has increased dramatically. This is due in part to the aging of the Baby Boomer generation and the fact that more seniors are living longer and healthier lives. As the population of seniors in the United States continues to grow, so too does the number of those who wish to age in place. But what does that mean for seniors with disabilities?
Aging in place generally refers to the ability to live in one’s own home and community as independently as possible as one ages. More and more seniors are choosing to age in place, making in-home accessibility increasingly important. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides some protections for seniors with disabilities in certain settings. However, there are still many challenges that make it difficult for them to live independently.
Accessible housing represents a primary challenge for seniors who choose to age in place. While some newer single-family homes incorporate accessibility features, there are still many older homes and apartments that lack basic features like wheelchair ramps and grab bars. This can make it very difficult for seniors with limited mobility to live on their own.
