Aging in Place - Eliminating the Trap (2 credit hours/2 HSW Hours)
Tues, May 12, 2020 10:00 am - 12:00 pm $125.00 Add to Cart
In millions of homes across our country, and in the homes of people we love, existing residences are slowly but surely becoming prisons for their occupants. This happens as the aging process inevitably removes our ability to successfully navigate stairs and perform daily tasks required to live and survive independent. Societal options exist to move from private residences into congregate living facilities, where oversight and care are offered at various levels for those facing challenges. But few are interested in thus surrendering their independence. We prefer to just age-in-place. 
 
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.
 
In this 2 hour webinar these increasing challenges in design will be explored offering examples to improve living accommodations. 
Paul Spite
  • A thorough understanding of physical changes that can be made inside and outside common residential structures, to make aging-in-place less physically challenging and less dangerous.   
  • An increased awareness of physical changes that can be made inside and outside common residential structures, to make aging-in-place less mentally confusing and therefore less dangerous.  
  • How to make changes in typical lighting strategies to improve living conditions for an aging population   
  • How different choices in finishes reduce or increase dangers in interior and exterior environments, typically encountered while aging-in-place
