Aging, Visitability, and Santa

“Visitability”

The aging in place movement embraces a concept known as “visitability” which is defined by 3 basic features:

1. One zero-step entrance, at the front, side, or back of the home

2. All main floor doors (bathrooms too) have at least 32 inches of clear passage space
