With the number of older adults in the U.S. expected to grow tremendously over the next four decades, housing options for seniors need to go far beyond just nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
INSIDENOVA’s article, More Housing Options, Opportunities Being Sought for Seniors, references the AARP’s view on what senior housing should look like, and the fact that seniors—when possible—should be able to live the lives they want, where they want. The AARP also believes that in the future, senior housing efforts should include the following:
- Improved home design.
- Affordable options.
- Promotion of financial security of housing assets.
- The fostering of home- and community-based service delivery
In other words, according to AARP, senior housing should meet the needs of the elderly, regardless of their age or ability.
