Senior Citizen Kitchen Design Ideas
Independence is the ability to take care of oneself, yet it is sometimes unintentionally taken for granted. Many people find themselves in a position where they need special accommodations in their home, either for an elder or disabled family member or themselves. As of 2014, there are over 56 million people in the US over the age of 65. By 2030 this number will climb to 111 million.
The term, coined aging in place, is the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level. It has made a positive impact on the aging community, as notably, 70% of seniors have made modifications to their home for safety reasons.
Nearly 90% of homeowners approaching retirement want to stay in their homes as they age.
Owings Brothers is here to help.
