HomesRenewed Coalition Mobilizes to Drive 2021 Legislation to Help Older Americans Age in Place and Stave Off Looming Housing Crisis

11/04/2020

November 4, 2020, Washington, D.C. - HomesRenewed Coalition, the leading organization championing home updates for living well throughout the modern lifespan, is mobilizing the leaders of the home renovation, homecare, technology, and others serving older Americans living in the community to call on the 117th Congress to include needed tax and other incentives in 2021 legislation. These incentives will enable Americans to upgrade their homes for safety and meet changing needs as well as to help the economy with construction jobs.

Aging in place -- big talk, but do people really believe it?

Who doesn’t want to live in their 'forever' home? After all, AARP has surveyed us for 2018 – staying there is apparently what 76% want, though only 59% expect that they will.  But responders also know that you can’t always get what you want. Concerns included the need for transportation regardless of physical status, ability to stay active in the community, and availability of hospitals nearby (though that 911 call can fail to find us).  And no, ride-sharing and self-driving cars are not viewed as panaceas.  We know many of the reasons older adults will leave their homes – families and the draw of grandchildren pull them nearer; a spouse dies; the home itself is too costly to keep.
