Rhode Island Design Community Event: Universal Design for the Bathroom
Tue March 21, 2017 at 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Tile Shop, 1400 Bald Hill Road, Warwick, RI 02886

The expansive Baby Boomer generation is aging, which signals the increasing need for homes, services and products that cater to their lifestyle. The majority of this population would prefer to age in place rather than relocating to a nursing home or assisted living facility, so there is an increasing and pertinent need to remodel the existing housing stock or build new residences that incorporate universal design to minimize injury and ease everyday tasks.
This is actually important for all age groups, because challenges in areas such as stamina, balance and dexterity can affect anyone and increase our need for support to move around the home and to operate bathroom fixtures. Designing a bathroom with universal design principles affords privacy, comfort, safety and independence in an aesthetically pleasing environment.
Four Learning Objectives:
• Introduce the Seven Principles of Universal Design.
• Understand the concept of “aging in place” and why the need for Universal Design
• Examine how design professionals are integrating Universal Design into their practice.
• Discuss recommendations for incorporating Universal Design into the bathroom.
This event is open to ASID members & non-members. Tickets are free for ASID members and $10 for non-members.
