Transcript

  • 1. UNIVERSAL DESIGN AND AGING IN PLACE: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW NOW Jamie Goldberg, AKBD, CAPS Jamie Goldberg Kitchen and Bath Design, LLC www.jgkitchens.com
  • 2. DEFINITIONS & DISTINCTIONS
    • Universal Design : Creating a space that can accommodate users of all ages and abilities.
    • Visitable: Creating a space that can accommodate the needs of a visitor with mobility challenges.
    • Aging in Place Design: Creating a space that can help offset the common conditions associated with aging and keep its occupants safe and productive in their own homes.

  • 3. UNIVERSAL DESIGN
    • What you should know now
    • Obesity trends could require more design customization.
    • Newer-model wheelchairs – built to accommodate larger users and offer more features – may require wider doorways and turn radius allowances.
    • Current design guidelines don’t factor in the needs of caregivers assisting the elderly or disabled.
    • The Veterans Administration has grants available for combat-induced injury accommodations.

  • 4. VISITABLE DESIGN
    • What you should know now
    • Returning soldiers with combat-related injuries will require that more homes be adapted for visitability.
    • In cases of soldiers returning to relatives’ homes, there could be VA grants available for remodeling.
    • Aging U.S. demographics could also impact increasing need for visitability accommodations.
    • Recession-driven household consolidations could increase need for visitability accommodations.

  • 5. AGING-IN-PLACE DESIGN
    • What you should know now
    • Likeliest to be largest of the three trends, based on population size and trends.
    • Peter Pan Syndrome dominates – avoid the “A” word.
    • Most style-conscious: Resort spa vs. rehab hospital room.
    • Broadest spectrum and least predictable design considerations.

  • 6. AGING-IN-PLACE DESIGN
    • What you should consider now
    • Current design trends – e.g., zoned kitchens, spa baths – work well for AIP design.
    • Tech trends can benefit AIP projects.
    • Indoor air quality “green” trends lend themselves well to AIP.
    • Water/energy-saving “green” trends also play well for aging Woodstock generation and fixed-income retirees.

  • 7. AGING-IN-PLACE DESIGN OFFSETS
    • Common aging issues design can help offset:
    • Reduced vision
    • Fatigue
    • Memory loss
    • Arthritis and other joint stiffness
    • Hearing loss
    • Balance issues
    • Respiratory challenges

  • 8. AIP AND CURRENT KITCHEN DESIGN TRENDS
    • Point-of-use appliances reduce steps and fatigue.
    • Appliances mounted directly below countertops assist in balance offsets.
    • Zoned kitchens also offer memory assistance – easier to find task-related items.

  • 9. AIP AND CURRENT KITCHEN DESIGN TRENDS
    • Storage accessories offset flexibility loss.
    • Accessories can also increase base cabinet capacity – ideal for open plans with fewer wall units.
    • Eliminating wall cabinets assists the hearing-impaired.
