What Is Aging In Place?
Being able to continue to live in your own house independently and safely as you grow older and the changes in your needs are referred to as aging in place. The National Aging in Place Council said that more than 90% of the older adults would like to age in place in their very own houses instead of moving to senior housing. But a lot of their houses would need expensive modifications.
What Is A Universal Design?
A universal design is referred to as the design of environments and products so that they are useable by all people to their greatest extent without the need for specialized design or adaptation. A Myrtle Beach custom home that comes with a universal design will meet the needs of all those living in the house even if their abilities and needs change as years go by.
