This webinar will provide attendees the latest national and state data on
housing and transportation relevant to an aging population. Hear how disability
rates, family structures, foreclosure rates, and the age of homes have shifted
in the decade, as older households adapt to face new and continuing challenges.
Learn what’s being done to address issues of affordability. Understand the
latest travel patterns of those 65+ as observed in the 2009 National Household
Travel Survey. Hear what public and private sector strategies AARP’s planning
experts recommend for the creation of lifelong communities. During the webinar,
presenters will show their new 6.5 minute video entitled, “Active Living for All
Ages: Creating Communities Around Transit,” and discuss how the voices of older
adults living in Arlington, VA’s TOD neighborhoods can help win the argument for
walkable, mixed-use communities.
