So many friends and subscribers have mentioned that they are finally building their dream homes. Baby Boomers with money are retiring and we want to be comfortable. I have learned many things since my mother and father-in-law moved in with us. One of the most obvious is how much we take our mobility for granted.
I’m sure you can all pitch in something on this post. I’ll start out by saying, build your house with the idea that you will be living in it when you are ninety-five. It is much easier design it now with wide interior doors, space for ramps, grab bars and no stairs. Think of it as avoiding the argument with your kids the first time they think of sending you to a senior care center because you can’t get a wheel chair into your kitchen.
