Housing inequality is becoming increasingly evident among older Americans as the number of older households climbs to unprecedented levels. This growth presents a host of housing challenges. Within the next decade, some 18 million adults will be in their 80s—many living alone and on limited incomes. The need for affordable, accessible housing is therefore set to soar. For households in this age group that remain in their current homes, new transportation alternatives and opportunities for engagement in the community will be critical to their continued ability to live independently.
