"Most people would rather enjoy their later years at home, in comfortable, familiar surroundings - but often the house itself is the obstacle. Now, with this revolutionary handbook, you can learn how to turn the home you love into a safe and attractive residence for the rest of your life. Written by an interior designer specializing in design for older adults, this guide offers simple, practical, and inexpensive solutions, as well as advice on more extensive renovations that will allow you to grow old in your own home. In her room-by-room analysis of the average house, Rosemary Bakker deals with every aspect of home adaptation."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
