As aging homeowners get older and become more vulnerable to things that were not as harmful to them before, it is important that they accommodate their residence to their lifestyle so that they can live a happier and longer life. Otherwise, older folks could get seriously hurt or even pass away if they live in a house that is not accommodating to their aging lifestyle.
While Aging residents will need different things varying their health and life conditions, homeowners should at least consider accommodating inside and outdoor lighting, installing handlebars, a stairlift, and checking their flooring to see if there are any cracks or foundation issues. But what every aging homeowner should have in their homes are insulated, UV-protected windows.
Since aging homeowners are likely to be more sensitive to colder temperatures, insulated windows preserve more heat which makes them less sensitive to cold drafts. Another factor is that aging people have more sensitive skin and are more vulnerable to sunburns and skin cancer. Quality UV-protected windows can reduce up to 99% of harmful UV rays in the house. Aging homeowners that have areas in their homes that get constant sunlight should get UV-protected windows so they do not get painful sunburns.
As homeowners get older, they need their primary residence to accommodate their older lifestyle so they are not just more comfortable but are less at risk of getting hurt. At the very least, installing insulated/UV-protected windows is a great starting point for homeowners to begin.
