Sinopsis: You don't need a retirement home. You need a great home for retirement!
Nesting for Empty Nesters®: The Vacation Style Living™ Approach to Aging in Place is the practical guide to using smart design to prepare your home now for a better quality of life in retirement and beyond. Author Francisca Alonso, a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS), Associate Member of the American Institute of Architects, and co-founder of AV Architects + Builders in Great Falls, Virginia, challenges you to reimagine and reinvent your home into a stylish, comfortable and safe retreat for decades to come - an oasis where you can age in place.
Research shows that by age 65 an astounding 87% of adults want to stay in their current home and community as they age. Still, 90% of homeowners will procrastinate in preparing their home for aging in place and risk being forced into last minute, limited, and costly decisions by a health issue. Nesting for Empty Nesters® will show you how to be part of the 10% who plan for a retirement of casual luxury at home surrounded by family and friends.
Aging in place is living an active, fulfilling life, independently in your own home custom designed for your comfort, convenience and safety in retirement and beyond. Nesting for Empty Nesters® reveals that the baby boomer generation is embracing aging in place as part of the "successful aging" trend and remodeling their homes to support this new vision of the Golden Years. They want - and deserve - homes that give them the freedom to flourish into the future.
Nesting for Empty Nesters® guides you through the process of evaluating the home you have and the key steps to transforming it into the home you need to age in place. With stunning photography, inspirational quotes and expert tips, Alonso prepares you for life's next grand adventure - right where you live.
