Aging in Place and Universal Design

Metro Legacy Homes incorporates the concept of “Universal Design” into its philosophy. We design products and environments usable by ALL people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design. Recognizing that the population is aging, the AARP has begun actively to promote Universal Design concepts to the National Home Builder’s Associations. Metro Legacy Homes is proud to be a “Certified Aging in Place Specialist” (CAPS). Engaging universal design concepts, clients don’t need to move from their homes in order to accommodate their changing needs.

Universal Design examines every element of a home... foundations to accommodation ramps, space considerations for a residential elevator, barthrooms for wheelchair access, kitchen counter heights suitable for all, HVAC monitoring and controls. Metro Legacy Homes will help Aging in Place clients assess their needs and offer recommendations for their home while they are in residence.
