›Focus: Access to a wide range of safe and affordable housing and home modification options that support aging in the community; housing that is accessible to transportation and community and health services.

AARP consistently finds that older adults want to stay in their homes and communities for as long as possible. Doing so is much easier if a house is designed or modified for aging in place and if a community includes housing options for varying life stages and bank accounts.
