According to AARP, 90 percent of people age 65 and older would prefer to stay in their own homes as they age, rather than go to a nursing home or assisted living facility. However, of the 63% of U.S. adults who own their own homes, about one-third expect their homes will need major modifications to accommodate aging needs.

Ask any family in the Orange County area what they consider to be the heart of their home, and you’ll most likely hear “the kitchen.” From three meals a day to game nights around the table or island, this space is where families gather more than any other room.
