Virginia Makes Positive Impacts on Housing for Aging in Place
Virginia state and housing leaders are finding success with informing plans and raising funds to benefit aging in place for their older population.
Studies show older adults want to age in place. But with nationwide affordable housing shortages, many Americans worry they won’t be able to.
Experts point to housing modifications and in-home services as solutions for older adult living, especially in rural areas. Unfortunately, these types of services often go underfunded. And many state agencies say they need more reliable data to help justify grant funding and meet federal guidelines.
So how can AAA, state government, housing, and planning leaders make a significant difference for Americans aging in place?
In this webinar:
- Hear from Virginia leaders in aging and housing about how they use data to make decisions
- Learn what state and local governments can do to help older adults age in place
- See how your government can make housing accessible, affordable, and available for older adults in your community
- Michelle Kobayashi, Principal Research Strategist at Polco
- Charlotte Arbogast, Senior Policy Analyst at Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services
