Q: 8. What are Living in Place Institute programs? - Why have they captured international interest?

Living in Place Institute programs, Certified Living In Place Professional (CLIPP), Living In Place Professional (LIPA), and Home & Accessibility Trade Specialist (HATS) are all part of a fundamental shift to a simpler, complete approach to improving safety - comfort - accessibility, in all home and public spaces through designs and products
 
CLIPP is the only program officially Endorsed by the National Kitchen & Bath Association. CLIPP is a total market approach to making all homes safe - comfortable - accessible, regardless of the current or future occupant's needs or age.

Our research into earlier programs led to some basic conclusions. First, and most significant, they did not succeed in broad recognition or approval from either industry or consumer. Programs based on aging are inherently flawed because they focus on a segmented group and do not address the needs of all consumers or businesses. Universal Design, while we support the original concept, holds it's own irony because it is a set of principles, not design ideas, nor practical solutions or business framework. All businesses know that limited market focus results in limited business. Even more important may be that when providers isolate a consumer into a specific group, they often resist and mistrust the provider. This resistance too often leads to denial of needs, therefore services and products, and is almost impossible to overcome when selling only group (age) based services and products.

The Living In Place Institute has developed, through a concerted effort, programs that enjoin all industry professionals in both program development and continuing participation from the entire industry and focus on all homes, regardless of the current or future occupant's needs or age. Included are designers, modification contractors, builders, developers and architects, trades experts, medical and non-medical care providers, real estate and home inspectors, product manufacturers, trades professionals, and many others.

This new methodology recognizes the responsibility of all industry professionals to network and develop business strategies for understanding common and unique issues and creating conventional business approaches of providing design and product solutions in every home.

Living In Place Institute programs:
  • Living In Place is a total-market, business approach to safety - comfort - accessibility in all homes.

    Q: 19. Is Living In Place another name for "aging-in-place" and "universal design?"
    NO. Living In Place is the practice of making all homes safe - comfortable - accessible for everyone. Aging-in-place is directed towards older adults and is often considered providing medical advice, something only a licensed medical professional is authorized to offer.

    While the original concept of universal design was well-intentioned, the principles were only an educational project and cannot be related to designs and products. The term is often used to promote products that the Living in Place Institute strongly recommends NOT using. Just one example is lever door handles. Proponents of "universal design" recommend and show a lever door handle without an end-return. That type of lever door handle will not only catch clothes but may allow a person's hand to slide off the end of the handle. They are dangerous! The Living In Place Institute recommends using a lever handle with an end-return that is specifically designed to prevent a hand from sliding off, as recommended by medical professionals. In fact, a lever handle without an end return would never be allowed in a public space.

    An example of just one of the universal design principles:

    Principle #1 

    Guideline: Provide the same means of use for all users -  Identical whenever possible; equivalent when not. 
    Concern: Identical and equivelent - How is that possible in one design or product?

    Guideline: Avoid segregating or stigmatizing any users.
    Concern: Universal Design and Agin-In-In-Place are terms that segregate and stigmatize!

    Guideline: Provisions for privacy, security and safety should be equally available for all users.
    Concern: All users are not the same!

    Guideline: Make the design appealing to all users
    Concern: Will that ever be possible?
