The Atlanta region is experiencing a monumental demographic shift and we are not prepared. By 2030, one out of every five residents will be over the age of 60. The region’s housing and transportation infrastructure is not ready to the support the changing needs and preferences of a growing older adult population. Getting healthy and staying healthy is increasingly difficult in communities with limited access to basic health services and too few opportunities for walking, exercise, good nutrition and recreation. Older adults and those who care for them do not have the information and support to make decisions about their future as informed, empowered consumers.
This workshop will highlight ways to rethink the way we live in and design our communities to meet the housing needs not only of older adults but residents of all ages.
