Bipartisan Policy Center: Healthy Aging Begins at Home

The Healthy Aging Begins at Home report by the Bipartisan Policy Center examines four specific aspects of the challenge before us:

  • The need for a much greater supply of homes affordable to our nation’s lowest-income seniors.
  • The importance of transforming homes and communities so that seniors can age with options, a desire shared by the overwhelming majority of older adults.
  • The imperative to better integrate health care and supportive services with housing, recognizing that this integration has the potential to improve health outcomes for seniors and reduce the costs borne by the health care system.
  • The need to deploy technologies on a far wider scale to help all Americans age successfully.

As well as strategies to address these challenges.
