Accessible homes for older people is a hot topic now and for good reason. As people move into the third part of their lives, they don’t want to have to move someplace new. Unfortunately, most homes are not created with accessibility in mind. Which means, most of the houses in the United States are not suitable for someone who is in their 70’s.
If you put on top of that that there are many older adults who have some sort of disability, it increases the severity of not having accessible homes available.
