Aging is a fact of life, yet we design houses, environments and products without thinking of the full spectrum of users. It is widely known that as we age, we acquire disabilities. Almost 20% of the population has a disability, but prevalence increases with age (i.e. 40% for 65-69 years of age). We need to design for older people in mind, and allow them to age in their homes.
We hope to soon have training available discussing disability, ageing and later life.
