Inspecting Disability Housing or Aging in Place Inspections
The Baby Boom population is 50 million people over 65 today. A large amount of these baby boomers have or are developing disabilities. This means many homes are being remodeled to accommodate those that prefer aging in place. These homes need aging in place inspections.
Unlike their parents’ generation, Baby Boomers will seek care in their own homes and will be less likely to move into congregate living settings. Many think nursing homes are a loss of freedom and a reduced quality of life. Recognizing that their homes can become unsafe and difficult to navigate, they are retrofitting houses, building additions or constructing new homes with age-friendly features. These homes need aging in place inspections.
