I have asked one of the other members of the ReTouch community (we have a number of companies in the construction and real estate industry that office together and work collaboratively) to write for this week, and I think you might find it interesting.
Bryon Sunday owns Accessibility Remodeling, and they specialize in creating spaces that allow people to live independently who may not otherwise be able to do so. There are a lot of names for this type of work: Universal Design, Aging in Place, Accessible Remodeling, Senior Remodeling… Whatever the term, this concept is helping to make housing and other buildings much more usable for a larger segment of the population.
This service can be very helpful for anyone with a disability, but it is also useful for an aging population that wants to stay in their home longer while living as safely as possible.
