Everyone who owns their own home can talk with pride and joy over just how well their last home remodeling project went. It was no longer a pipe dream. It was a dream in the making the day they sat down at the living room table and sketched their first plans as to how they would like their home to look like next. The aging in place St Louis concept should, by now, be acquiring a new set of wings. That’s because these wings should be spread even wider to new counties, boroughs and cities and urban developments.
Because the more people that know about it, only the more can and will benefit. Earlier, it was remarked that this is home remodeling of a different kind for people no different from the rest of us. We may be homeowners but so are they. And why shouldn’t they have a home exactly to their liking and, more importantly, exactly in accordance with their personal and physical requirements. Why shouldn’t a wheelchair bound mom not have easy thoroughfare to her patio area and swimming pool.
Why shouldn’t an autistic child have easily recognizable features in his bedroom, kitchen and bathroom so as to allow him to function well and as opposed to the current cases of him having to jolt in confusion, not knowing which way to turn and what next to do. The concept has to do with sensory room designs. Its purpose is to create accessibility for those folks who should be treated just as normally as everyone else.
It’s a concept that allows senior citizens to continue enjoying their familiar territory without ever having to stumble and fall and struggle.
