Checklist for an Elder Friendly Law Office

As the American population ages, accommodating the needs of older Americans becomes more and more important to a myriad of businesses. An elder-friendly law office is one that provides spatial and social accommodations for disabilities prevalent among older persons such as hearing loss, visual impairment, and mobility limitations. In order to better provide legal services to an older population, your office floor plan, lighting, furniture, and staff procedures need to be designed so elders with disabilities can easily navigate your office. By complying with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessibility Guidelines and making the other practical design decisions highlighted in this publication, you can improve an older client's experience in your office.
