Independent for Life: Homes and Neighborhoods for an Aging America Paperback


April 15, 2012 by Henry Cisneros (Editor), Margaret Dyer-Chamberlain (Editor), Jane Hickie (Editor)

Do you want to age independently in your own home and neighborhood? Staying home, aging in place, is most people's preference, but most American housing and communities are not adapted to the needs of older people. And with the fastest population growth among people over 65, finding solutions for successful aging is important not only for individual families, but for our whole society. In Independent for Life, former HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros and a team of experts on aging, architecture, construction, health, finance, and politics assess the current state of housing and present new possibilities that realistically address the interrelated issues of housing, communities, services, and financial concerns.
