Over at www.ToolBase.org they have a great checklist to check for senior safety issues in home and other buildings. You can use it for new construction projects as well as for assessing existing homes and building. They include some things that are obvious (“Main living on a single story, including full bath“) as well as some clever things that you might overlook without the list (“Surface to place packages on when opening door“). See the whole list at Aging-In-Place Design Checklist.
