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.
