A Wall Street Journal article cited statistics from The United States of Aging Survey – adults 60 and older were asked to identify their biggest concern about aging: 40% said that maintaining physical health was important; 32% said maintaining mental health; 25% said living independently and 13% said getting to visit family and/or friends was important.
A survey unrelated to this article caused me to view the last two results with some skepticism. That survey showed that lonely and isolated seniors are more likely on average to report poor physical and/or mental health. I believe that 13% may have answered differently with that knowledge.
So what do these stats even have to do with interior design you ask?
Nine in ten folks want to remain in their homes as they age. Beautiful design is important but so is a home that is designed for the future – one that is accessible, regardless of your physical ability.
So why leave home if you don’t have to? We can design a beautiful home for you today with tomorrow in mind.
