Aging in Place in Condominiums

Aging in Place in Condominiums

Pin It

“Aging in place” refers to the ability of a homeowner to remain living in their own house and community independently as they age rather than moving to a retirement or assisted-living facility.

In 2019, about 16.5% of the American population was over the age of 64. By comparison, that number is projected to reach 22% by 2050.

With that in mind, condominium, homeowner (HOA) and townhome associations should consider an aging population when evaluating their community policies, including:

  • Immobility and/or accessibility
  • Mental and general health concerns
  • Social isolation and community involvement
  • Communication channels
  • Financial concerns
  • Preventing ageism discrimination
