CMHC research shows that 80% of aging Canadians would like to ‘age in place’ in their own homes and communities, and their expectation is that these spaces will continue to allow them to live vibrantly. The social, psychological and health benefits of this kind of environment cannot be understated, but to unlock them we need to create homes that reflect the realities of the owners, allowing them to live with style and power. We know that it’s possible to achieve a future where homes are fully adapted to age and ability of their users, and where technology and design go hand-in-hand to support inclusivity and wellness. In fact, we just launched a new initiative called Livable Environments to educate the aging consumer on how key stakeholders are changing the landscape and creating spaces that enable fuller lives. You can benefit from this conversation, so please contact us if you would like to hear more.
TAKEAWAY: Living spaces need to intelligently adapt to the realities of the new aging consumer generation. Companies who lead this change will be well-placed to capitalize on this explosive market growth.
