The Baltimore Sun recently published an article about Aging in Place and the growing market for homes designed according to this idea. It highlights the shortage of housing supportive of people to age in place and also features the story of a couple as they attempted to buy a new home. The article has good statistics on the state of the housing stock in the United States and the costs of renovations or custom building a home in order to demonstrate the importance of incorporating aging in place features into new construction from the start as a long term solution. It is definitely worth the read.
