Staying Power: Age-Proof Your Home for Comfort, Safety and Style empowers aging adults to make their homes safer, more comfortable and livable, by themselves or with help from friends, family members and professionals. This practical, problem-solving guide is the first to combine the latest insights into aging with expert-approved, easy-to-follow age-proofing instructions. Written in a clear, conversational style by an award-wining science and health writer, the book helps you easily customize furnishings, layout and decor without breaking your back or your budget. Learn how to communicate about this sensitive topic, assess situations and plan ahead, and locate helpful resources. Whether you're planning ahead, ready to act, or helping someone else, learn about the changes of normal aging -- and how to make any type of house, apartment or condo a safer, more supportive home for years to come. Lists hundreds of valuable U.S. and Canadian resources and handy to-do checklists and shopping lists to kick-start your age-proofing projects. Addresses mind-and-body fitness to help people use their homes to build the essential physical capacity to stay independent, too. The author is herself a baby boomer who puts friction tape on the stairs.
