Written by an architect with Duany Plater-Zyberk with expertise in design for an aging society, this is a guide to urban planning and urban design solutions to accommodate the needs of a population aging in place in both existing and new communities of various scales. Complete with case studies of successful communities, the book shows how, through (social, economic, transportation, and public health) policy, land use, and urban design decisions, a community can allow for residents to age in place gracefully.
