Architect focusing on Baby Boomer options

The program is free, but the advice is priceless, promises an area architect.

Dennis C. Melton of Melton Associates in Kennett Square says that a series of presentations on what he terms “Intergenerational Design for Comfortable Living,” which concludes on Tuesday, June 28, has proven so popular that he plans to schedule another set of sessions, probably in the fall.

The concept gets its genesis from the plight of Baby Boomers, who find themselves with an empty nest or a multi-generational family – and a dizzying amount of competing challenges. Melton, himself a Baby Boomer, constructed the talks to address issues such as building or renovating with housing design techniques, features for sustainable living, long-term independence, and in-home care giving.

Tuesday’s session, which runs from 7 to 8 p.m., is entitled “Resources: Help Around the House, Transportation, Meals, Care Giving.” Earlier programs covered topics such as accommodations to stay in one’s home or options to consider in choosing a new one.

The presentations are held at Melton’s office at 206 North Union Street in Kennett Square. RSVPs are requested by calling 610-444-8538 or emailing
