With millions of boomers looking toward retirement, the question of where all of these people want to spend their golden years begins to grow in importance. While research shows that many boomers would like to age in place in their current homes, that is not always possible. This is creating enormous growth in the demand for homes with universal design features that allow for easy access and living. Some builders have seen this trend and are working to create both homes and communities that are designed to promote healthy and safe aging. AARP and the National Association of Home Builders recently teamed up to recognize the builders, developers and remodelers that best incorporated universal design features in their work with the Livable Communities Awards.
