Interior designer helps boomers make age-friendly homes

Topic(s) : Senior Home Safety

Lindia Mariani, an interior designer located in the area of Weston, Massachusetts, recently wrote a column in The Weston Town Crier about the ways in which baby boomers are changing the face of aging. The biggest change she predicts is that older adults will strive to stay independent as long as possible.

"Independence means not having to rely on someone else to accomplish daily routines such as personal hygiene, exercise and socializing with friends, as well as meeting the needs of one’s own property management," she wrote in the article.

Still, living in a home alone or with a spouse during the golden years may mean making some changes. Mariania explains that it is important to modify one's home so that it is more age-friendly.

An addition that may prove helpful is a personal emergency response system. This device can allow boomers to immediately send a medical alert if they need assistance when living independently.

Marania suggests that many older adults are now moving to low-maintenance condos or starting to renovate their homes accordingly. She herself has already installed a grab rail and adjustable handheld shower in the bathroom.
