"I am going to make everything around me beautiful. That will be my life." ~ Elsie de Wolfe

Joyce Joneschiet (Jonah-shite) started Encore Living Interiors to provide a service that seemed to be missing for those seniors and baby boomers who want to age in place in their own home. Especially those who want not only to have a safe home that assists in fall prevention but also is comfortable and beautiful at the same time.

As an interior designer, Joyce saw the need to design spaces that could accommodate the disabled, injured veterans and seniors with homes that could be enjoyed and bring dignity and pride into their environments.

"I appreciate so much what our parents have seen and accomplished during their lifetimes. They've driven the first cars, been through many wars, survived the depression and are now in the information and computer age. The magnitude of change that they've experienced throughout their life is incredible. I don't want to forget their contribution to our world and society. This is a small way to make a difference in their lives as a thank you to their hard work and sacrifice."

Encore Living Interiors works to bring transformation and education, designing environments that serve the needs of the baby boomer, senior and disabled community.

Joyce publishes "Encore Life Magazine - Better Living In The Second Stage of Life," a national lifestyle magazine for baby boomers celebrating the active life. Her blog is an online magazine and she publishes a quarterly digital magazine with original articles on topics such as travel, nutrition, healthcare, leaving a legacy, money and business.
