UD and Ageing in Place in Alaska

alaska house logoWhile this video talks about universal design, it is really about specific home modifications. Grab bars (the hospital look) feature strongly. However, for home renovators or anyone new to adapting homes to suit a person with disability, this video spells out why certain features are important. The best thing about this video is that it is set in Alaska and shows how designs for weather issues can be overcome. The same issues arise in some parts of Australia but are often forgotten in standards and guidelines. The video is 20 minutes long, but covers many areas of the home. With closed captioning.
