In this resource, AARP, which works to enhance quality of life for older adults, provides guidance for disaster-affected communities to help them rebuild and recover in ways that make them better places to live for people of all ages. AARP points out that the U.S. population is aging and argues for the importance of making communities accessible to and livable for older adults and those of all ages.
This resource identifies key features of an age-friendly community; presents principles of livable land use, housing, transportation, and mobility; and offers links to other resources to help with planning and implementing rebuilding and development. [Author: Anthony, J.]
