Designing Homes for Aging in Place
As we get older, we may prefer to stay in the home in which we raised our family or, if possible, design and build a new home to accommodate our changing needs. Building a home for older adults might include the absence of interior thresholds, wide hallways and doors, a first-floor bedroom or even no second floor at all. But whether our loved ones choose to design a new home, adapt an older one, or simply stay where they are with minimal changes (no loose rugs, a stair lift, a ramp to the front door, etc.), one thing that every senior would benefit from is radiant floor heating.
