GRAND Magazine - September/October 2018 - 12

the future of aging
and solutions that emerge provide benefits for everyone.
Working through the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and
Communities, towns and cities are piloting innovative solutions to,
for instance, make "tiny home" communities viable for low-income
older adults at risk for homelessness. Neighborhoods are leading
projects that beautify the community, grow healthy food and provide
opportunities for intergenerational collaboration. Municipalities are
making their roadways safer for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians.
Want to learn how livable your community is compared to others
in your region or elsewhere in the country? Visit the AARP Livability
Index, enter your zip-code or town name, and then calculate a score
showing how your community fares in categories including housing,
transportation, community engagement, the environment, health
and more.

"

When communities are livable for
people of all ages and life stages,
everyone can live their best lives at
every age.

"

Want to make your community more walkable? Download or
order the AARP Walk Audit Tool Kit, gather a few friends and spend
some time observing and documenting the pedestrian hazards of
your neighborhood's streets and sidewalks. Have an idea for a great
livability project? Work with your municipality or a nonprofit group
and apply for an AARP Community Challenge "quick-action" grant.
When communities are livable for people of all ages and life
stages, everyone can live their best lives at every age.
