Topic:

INDEPENDENT FOR LIFE --

Homes and Neighborhoods for an Aging America

Abstract:

When you eventually retire, do you want to age independently in your own home and neighborhood? Staying home and aging in place is most people's preference, but most American housing and communities are not adapted to the needs of older people. And with the fastest population growth among people over 65, finding solutions for successful aging is important, not just for individual families, but for our whole society. This talk covers a wide range of smart solutions, including adapting technology, remodeling current housing, building new homes for accessibility and safety, retrofitting existing neighborhoods to add needed services and amenities, and planning new communities that work well for people of all ages.
