My husband and I are middle-aged, reasonably active but with some health problems that might get worse with age - mostly achey pains. I'm trying to think ahead to when we're older and even creakier, and want to try to work toward a design which will accommodate limited mobility. What permaculture design ideas should I keep in mind and begin to implement which would be most helpful to aging in place? Rather than ask for specific design advice about our place at the beginning of this topic, I'd like to keep the ideas general and widely applicable at first. Maybe later in the thread I can ask for specific advice about my own design?
supposed to have. The ideas of permaculture are helping, but practically I'm not there yet.

Plastic boards are 95% recycled plastic; probably the largest volume of recycled plastic, so if we want the plastic recycled someone has to buy the boards.
