Webinar: A Framework for Assessing Aging in Place Technologies (CM | 1.5)
February 25, 2011 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
According to a recent AARP survey, “eighty-nine percent of Americans want to stay as long as possible in their current houses … [and] … the prospect of going to a nursing home is a constant fear.” However, the current built environment does not support the growing number of increasingly fragile individuals either in their homes, or in the community. Planners and policy makers must advance infrastructure supporting aging in place within a comprehensive and inclusive planning strategy. This session briefly reviews aging research and presents a matrix of individual, cultural, health, economic, legal, infrastructure, and environmental systems within which to consider aging in place technologies.
