Steve Hoffackerabout this book: People generally enjoy the homes they are living in - or they have an idea of how to improve them to make them more enjoyable, comfortable, useable, or safer. Rather than packing up and moving every few years, which used to be quite common, many people are now deciding to stay we they are for a several years longer. This ushers in the concept of "aging-in-place" where people are deciding that they have the home that serves them relatively well - or can be adapted to do so - and they want to stay put.
That brings us to the subject of this book which is using the concepts of universal design to make our homes and the features and fixtures in them more enjoyable, convenient, comfortable, safer, accessible, and visitable. Literally dozens of ideas, strategies, treatments, concepts, and solutions - many of them inexpensive and of the do-it-yourself variety (if you are so inclined) - are included in the text. If you want to use a contractor or designer, you now know what to discuss with them. Both consumers and providers will find this book useful.
