Senior Class

The boomers are on their way to old age... how are we catering to their needs? An article about Senior Hair Salons caught my eye today in the Seattle Times.

Think of the opportunities! Most good and intelligent design seems to focus itself on the youngest generations and technology, but soon we'll have a generation of senior citizens with new needs and preferences and concerns.

In the case of the hair salon, they thought about the design details that would draw in the elderly - from the cape to the decor on the wall to the sounds and sensations around the salon.

What other services could be changed to accomadate a clientele a bit advanced in age?
