As Bob Dylan famously sang in the ‘60s, “The times, they are a-changing.” America’s population continues to age, but how well is it adapting to homes that are also older and perhaps now less-suited to the needs of the aging or the infirm?
The AARP Foundation and the Harvard Joint Center of Housing Studies found that only 1 percent of the United States’ housing stock is equipped with the recommended universal design features for a bathroom, including step-free entry into the home or or curb-less shower with handheld adjustable showerhead.
So 1 percent of homes are suited for tomorrow, but nearly nine of 10 folks 65 and older want to age in place, remain in their homes and communities and continue enjoying the lives they’ve been leading. This is where Next Day Access provides the help you may need with accessibility solutions for your beloved home and all you need to do is make one phone call to receive your free in-home estimate.
