Visions for Aging in Place - Challenges for the Future

Visions for Aging in Place—Challenges for the Future

Update from the Office of Policy Development & Research

Featuring Henry Cisneros, Chairman of CityView and former Secretary of HUD

Due to the recent government shutdown the “Visions for Aging in Place – Challenges for the Future” event has been rescheduled for January 9, 2014. If you had previously registered for the event, you will need to confirm your attendance by registering again for the event. We apologize for any inconvenience, and hope that you will be able to join us.

Increasing life expectancy, a declining birth rate, and the aging of the baby boom generation will dramatically increase the number and proportion of the U.S. population over the age of 62 in the coming decades. Aging of the population presents challenges and questions including where people will live and how they will obtain the support and care they will require as they grow older.

Attend this special update to hear about these challenges and the economics of aging in place, social service demands, technology and physical requirements, community planning, and government programs. Come hear how housing can be a platform for improved lifestyles for the aging population and enable health care cost savings.

Following Secretary Cisneros’ remarks a panel will examine the issues.

  • Jennifer Ho, Moderator, Senior Advisor on Housing and Services in the Office of the Secretary, HUD
  • Judith Willett, National Director of the Village to Village Network
  • Jane Hickie, Executive Director of the Stanford Center on Longevity
  • James Toews, Senior Policy Analyst, Administration for Community Living, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

Please join us on January 9, 2014 for this important event. Please visit our website to register or view the webcast information.
