Continuing demographic trends and significant changes in the expectations of older citizens have together created a need for all of us to rethink what it means to grow older in our communities. Older adults are looking for options that support a successful and meaningful aging process. This course is built around the concept of "aging in community," rather than "aging in place." We will focus on innovative thought leaders in the field of aging, and on issues related to successful aging in community, including generational differences; next-generation home health models; housing and the challenges related to affordability; innovations in housing programs, services, and care; and how new technologies are being used to enhance and support home- and community-based living.
