By 2030 the number of United States adults age 50 and older will grow to 132 million. This is up 70% from 2000!!!! This rise is due to the massive baby boomer generation climbing in age AND a greater longevity among older Americans.
Younger boomers who are now in their 50's are of special concern, since they are less financially secure than generations past - Thanks in part to the Great Recession.
More affordable, and suitable rental housing is needed to address the needs of the aging population. Communities need to explore efficient ways to support aging Americans. Services also include transportation systems and rezoning for accommodation of residents who may want to downsize but stay in their town.
We need to address our future senior housing needs!
