Aging in Place: Choice Architecture

Aging in Place

I've been reading the intriguing New York Times Bestseller,  Nudge by Thaler and Sunstein. With a subtitle like this: "Improving Health, Wealth, and Happiness,"  I got sucked in and couldn't pass it by. After all, who isn't in pursuit of improving their health, wealth, and happiness; and they overlap perfectly with aging in place.

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

3. A half bath, preferably a full bath, on the main floor

These elements will make your house a “visitability” home, allowing wheelchair or other mobility challenges to be accommodated.
