Universal Design as a Rehabilitation Strategy

Design for the Ages


A unique resource for rehabilitation engineers, design and building professionals, rehabilitation counselors, gerontologists, psychologists, and other health and mental health professionals, this volume covers the significance and impact of universal design as a change agent for social and health movements. With a focus that is both practical and visionary, it emphasizes how the use of universal design can promote increased performance and participation for the aging population and people with disabilities, while mitigating the stigma and segregation that often characterize traditional rehabilitation design strategies.

The Hunted (Mills & Boon Nocturne)

A tempting stranger with a dangerous secret… When a handsome stranger washes up in a storm by Beth’s beachside home, she is cautious; her immediate attraction to him frightens her. She knows nothing about him…except that he’s hiding something. Shapeshifter Dylan was happy with his own kind but beautiful Beth drew him to live among humans…and risk…

Written by one of the few architecturally trained researchers engaged in environmental issues related to accessibility and design for aging, the book stresses that universal design is not solely for people with disabilities, but is about usability and inclusion for people of all levels of ability. It examines key social ecological models in rehabilitation for aging and disability, and sheds new light on health and disability at both the individual and population level.
