About this webinar

We all want to grow old or “very old”… and with aging comes experiencing illness or accident, and seeing our loved ones age and experience some type of sensory, cognitive, or motor impairments.  To allow us to carry out our  daily lives, architects and allied design professionals attempt to provide solutions that improve the quality of life of all people.
