Housing for an Aging Population

Housing for an Aging Population

The United States is at the beginning of a 20 plus year surge in the older population, and is thus at a critical point for putting in place the affordable housing options, accessibility features, and in home care services that will be needed over the next 2 decades.

Over the next 20 years, the population aged 65 and older is expected to increase from 48 million to 79 million.

By 2035 one in five people in the United States will be aged 65 and over. Up from one in seven today.

Housing design features that increase accessibility can allow those with mobility disabilities much more independence in the home. Currently, only 1% of the housing stock offers all 5 of these features.

  • Zero step entrance into the house
  • Single floor living
  • Wide doors and hallways to accommodate a wheelchair 
  • Electric controls reachable from a wheelchair
  • Lever style handles on faucets and doors

Are you considering purchasing a home in San Diego that has some or all of these accessibility features. We would love to help. There are new home communities building new homes that are multigenerational homes that may also be something that may suit your needs.

Mike and Dawn - I would imagine that many of the aging population will be looking to move into a smaller single story home with these features, as well as the newer multigenerational homes.

Troy, so true. Something with a little less maintenance is very desireable!
