AARP Offers Data and Age-Friendly Guidance for Rural Areas

Mar 6, 2019

Armed with reports like the Housing Assistance Council’s “Housing an Aging Rural America: Rural Seniors and Their Homes,”as well as a collaboration with the LOR Foundation, AARP published an extensive article on resources and examples of healthy aging and Age-Friendly Communities in rural areas.

A discussion among a cohort of stakeholders from rural areas in states across the country led to themes and concerns, but also ideas and examples of solutions on how to improve healthy aging in their communities. Massachusetts made an appearance thanks to the experience of Peg McDonough from Age-Friendly Berkshires.
