Enhancing Housing Options for Older Adults

Home building professionals are learning new and innovative ways to ensure older adults can live comfortably in their homes and communities as they age.

On Tuesday, June 18, at 3 p.m. ET, Rodney Harrell, vice president, family, home, and community for AARP, will lead a webinar titled “Creating Housing Options for an Aging America” to discuss his perspective on housing needs as people age.

“Participants can expect to learn about key demographic changes driving the demand for age-friendly housing, insights into the housing needs and preferences of older adults, and various solutions to enhance affordability and accessibility in housing to create supportive environments for all ages and abilities,” said Harrell.

America is aging quickly, with more than 55 million people over the age of 65. Soon, older adults will outnumber children for the first time in history.

“Members should attend this webinar because it provides valuable knowledge on the changing housing needs of an aging population, which is crucial for professionals aiming to develop and implement housing solutions that are both inclusive and supportive of older adults,” Harrell added.
