Open House: Could You Grow Old in Your Home?

Sometimes simple, elegant solutions can make all of the difference, such as these LED lights, which illuminate a low set of stairs at the Green Mountain Ranch. Design features such as minimal staircases, wide hallways that may accommodate wheelchairs, and showers with built-in seats are just a few of the features that make homes elderly-friendly. While my house is elderly-friendly in many ways, the long, uneven brick staircase that leads to the backyard is definitely not one of its more accessible features.

So tell me, could you grow old in your home? Is there anything preventing you from reaching the ripe old age of 80 or 90 within its walls? Tell me what makes your home elderly-friendly — or not — in the comments.
