WATCH: Interior Design for Seniors
With Shari Stein of Design Team +
Shari Stein is the principal interior designer of Design Team +, in Birmingham, Michigan. In this interview, we discuss her passion in designing user-friendly homes and assisted living facilities for those who are aging in place as well as those who need an assisted living environment. A key point that she raises is the need to personalize every home or facility. For example, she will place photos outside of the entrance so that someone who is suffering from cognitive issues can find his or her apartment in an assisted living facility. Special kitchens, floors and bathrooms are discussed as well in this important segment of Gracefully Greying.
