Older!


Age friendly communities

Survey after survey report that today’s older adults want to stay at home.

86%

Adults ages 45+ agree or strongly agree with the statement: “What I’d really like to do is stay in my current residence for as long as possible”

But homes are not designed to adapt. Homes have traditionally been designed and built for

an able-bodied 35-year-old.
