Should I Stay or Should I Go?


The Power of Design for Aging in Place

Unitarian Universalist Church of Greater Bridgeport, 275 Huntington Road, Stratford

Sunday, April 7th 1:00-2:00 P.M.

Free Presentation and Discussion

Many seniors are faced with the choice of whether to stay in their homes and communities in their retirement years or to move to an entirely different kind of living situation. In this one-hour free presentation and discussion, Aging in Place Design Specialist Colin Healy will share his perspectives on more than a decade of helping homeowners decide whether their homes can be transformed to support their decision to stay in their homes, on their own terms for as long as they choose. These insights are also relevant to adult children aiding their parents’ care.

Colin will discuss the concepts of Universal Design, which advocates that all products and environments should support the needs of all people, from the youngest to the oldest, and how to apply these principles to your home.

Case Studies will include:

Accessibility and Safety Modifications that are easy to achieve.

One floor living concepts for older homes.

Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU)

Multi-generational Living Solutions

This talk is the 2nd of a 3 part series on senior living challenges. The next will be a talk about Healthy Living Practices by Dr.James Ralabate & Dr. Daniel Williams. Date to be announced.
