Housing for the Elderly

Start an Aging in Place or Lifelong Community Initiative to educate about appropriate adaptations to ensure that housing remains appropriate as residents age. Provide incentives for development of housing specifically targeted for the elderly (assisted living, senior living, "mature" living, etc.). Evaluate local ordinances to ensure that this type of housing is allowed in appropriate areas of your community, particularly those that feature good walkability for exercise, shopping and social visits.
