Livable communities enhance the quality of life of those that live there. They are inclusive, engaging and help provide residents a safe, enjoyable and usable life among their neighbors.
Livable communities are made up of a variety of elements, including housing, education, transportation, culture, recreation and others that help create a positive living experience for all residents.
Unfortunately, not every community is ‘livable’ in those terms. And, many across the nation are a far cry from that for older Americans.
Livable communities must be America’s goal
In order to help our citizens and cities in the coming years as the population of older Americans grows, serious consideration needs to be given at a local level to creating livable communities.
As part of our series, “Why We Have to Figure Out Aging in Place“, this infographic on finding the right community highlights information from the top minds and organizations in the U.S. about what aging in a livable community should be like.
For those looking at their own community or looking to find a new community for aging in place, this information will give you an overview of elements you should look for.
