As the baby-boomer generation reaches retirement, many still have aging parents who are in relatively good health, but require special accommodations to remain independent. Fortunately, advances in accessibility design and technology help seniors live in their own homes longer, whether that home is a condo or a “Granny Flat” adjacent to a larger family home. Renovations to enable mobility may include wheelchair accessibility hands-free door openers, motion sensor lighting, walk-in tubs, grab- bars and toilets with raised seats.
