Other Designs for Aging in Place
In addition to adaptable design, there are three other basic categories of design for aging in place as defined by the National Association of Home Builders:
- Universal Design – Focuses on as much of the population as possible by designing space and products that can be used by those with and without disabilities.
- Accessible Design – Focuses on people with a disability by designing a space you can get around in with ease and comfort.
- Visitability Design – Focuses on wheelchair accessibility and works to create a path to or from ground floors.
