As identified in a recent article in ECOBUILDING Pulse by Leah Demirijian (in a publication of The American Institute of Architects, AIA), " First quarter numbers for 2015 show homeowners want increased square footage and accessible design updates". Additionally:

“An increase in home square footage with the rising popularity of accessible design concepts points to a population that is preparing to age-in-place, or, perhaps, is anticipating responsibility for caretaking of older relatives in the future” (Note: as quoted from the original article by AIA Chief Economist Kermit Baker, Hon. AIA).
