Help For All Those With Kitchen Envy
Posted By Patti Shea On June 7, 2012 @ 8:32 pm In Caregiving | Comments Disabled
I’ll admit it: I have kitchen envy. Each time I’m at a friend’s house I take mental pictures of their kitchen — or sometimes I ask if I can snap a couple — because I love everyone else’s kitchen but mine. (I have friends with excellent taste, it seems.) I pour through DIY sites and am always pinning photos onto to “My Dream Kitchen” board in Pinterest .
While aesthetics are OK to hassle over, safety , to me, is far more important. I continually worry about my parents, who live with me, and their ease and access around my kitchen. Is the floor too slippery? Is the stove a burn hazard ? Can mom reach cabinet shelves without a step stool?
Even if your name ain’t Jones we can all keep up with them, thanks to a great webinar hosted right here, by your good friends at AARP . Our experts will share practical tips on the latest kitchen trends and styles , as well as share design ideas on what you can do now to keep your kitchen fresh, vibrant and safe as you (and your parents) age.
Sounds great, right? Here’s the info you need:
