Money is spent on redesigning the space, budgeting for earlier replacement of fixtures, and adding noise reduction elements. For many seniors the running, jumping, screaming, and crying of kids in the dining room is seen as a discipline problem not a design problem. But there is a huge amount of pressure to not tell others how to raise their kids. Similar situations exist with equity of resource distribution, wear and tear on facilities, different safety considerations, etc. Long discussion ahead.
