Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Offers hospitality industry professionals the critical information they need to meet the needs of the fastest-growing segment of the American population: people ages 65 and up. Identifies the special physical needs and preferences of seniors and shows designers how to integrate those requirements into the design of various types of hospitality facilities, including restaurants, lobbies, lounges, restrooms, and more. Addresses design challenges related to sight and hearing impairment as well as limited strength, mobility, and accessibility and offers solutions to these problems through clear, illustrated examples.

From the Inside Flap

Hospitality Design for the Graying Generation With millions of baby boomers rapidly approaching retirement age, the over-65 age group is the fastest-growing segment of the population. As they become healthier, live longer, and have more disposable income, their use of hospitality services, such as hotels and restaurants, will increase dramatically. Whether you are a designer or a hospitality professional, Hospitality Design for the Graying Generation helps you plan for this growing market by providing you with critical information for designing facilities that accommodate the needs of all generations. Clearly written and generously illustrated, Hospitality Design for the Graying Generation shows you how to address the specific physical and psychological needs of seniors, with detailed chapters on mobility, hearing, vision, color preferences, and other important areas. Going beyond ADA guidelines, Alfred Baucom’s Universal Design approach enables you to integrate senior-friendly design principles into a wide range of specific environments—from lobbies, common areas, and public restrooms to restaurants, lounges, and hotel guest rooms. In meeting the needs of the over-65 market, Hospitality Design for the Graying Generation ensures that all potential users, regardless of age or ability, will be well accommodated.
