I recently came across an article in the Daily Mail about how half of our children will live to be 103 and the first person to reach 150 has already been born. This both pleased and worried me at the same time.

- Instead of steps leading up to the property, where possible landscape the front entrance so that it either has a ramped entrance or seemless goes from pathway to doorway.
- Wider doorways to allow ease of maneuverability for wheelchairs or wheeled walking frames.
- Staircases to be wide enough for two banister rails or for the Encasa Experts to work their magic in fitting a stairlift.
- Ensuite wet rooms, ensuites are growing more and more common in new builds but by adding a wet room it allows access by all age groups. The addition of a wall mounted shower chair will aid those who are unable to stand for periods of time.
