In the January–February 2020 Issue of Aging Today:

The January–February 2020 In Focus section of Aging Today contemplates what community really means, especially as people age into later life. Verna Cavey details how community works from the vantage point of a resident in independent living; Stephen Golant lays out the case for why it may not always be best to age in place; Dan Rosensweig of Habitat for Humanity outlines how the nonprofit goes about creating stable communities and secure housing out of neglected trailer parks; and Meals on Wheels volunteer drivers reveal what the job means to them—and to their clients.

Elsewhere in the issue, Cynthia Rudder and Lori Smetanka write about the transfer trauma and stress residents experience when their nursing home closes; and Dr. Elizabeth Tung explains why and how neighborhood violence contributes to social isolation and loneliness in older adults, especially older adults of color, and posits ideas for alleviating these conditions.
