Age

Age

Peoples' housing needs change throughout their lifetimes. Understanding the needs of differently aged people will help lead policy and research to be more inclusive. Research shows that older people, specifically, have unique needs and issues which must be addressed when thinking about urban planning and housing. Also, new concerns over inter-generational communities and how to better encourage interactions between age groups can be addressed in housing research and policy.
