Aging in Community

Is there a good way for my clients to plan for an event like Super Storm Sandy? What’s the latest smart growth model or in-home technology, and are there samples I could visit near my community? Where’s the closest senior center offering an up-to-date cognitive fitness programs? These subjects all fall under the heading Aging in the Community, and on this site we aim to keep our members up-to-date on the newest models for aging in place, as well as the news and research on home- and community-based programs and other topics related to Aging in Community. Check back regularly for updates.
