Description

As the aging population grows and life expectancy rises, the concept of housing for aging adults has evolved to support a more independent, active lifestyle. The need for affordable housing that allows individuals to age in place is increasing as demand is outpacing supply.

These Aging In Place Design Guidelines (along with Enterprise Aging in Place charrette tools, an existing building checklist, and prioritization tool) have been created to supplement existing Enterprise resources for sustainable, affordable housing. The Aging In Place Design Guidelines serve as a resource for both new construction and renovations of existing buildings, by providing best practice strategies to property owners that will allow residents the flexibility to age in their current home and remain a vibrant part of the community.
