Here it is: Boomers are Staying Put

by Louis on August 17, 2011

Here is a good report, Biggest Boomer Towns, by contributor and New Geography blogger Joel Kotkin discussing data showing that we boomers are planning to stay put in the suburbs.

No surprise to me or most Aging in Place advocates. Not that many people really moved before, alluded to in the article, even though some see the drop in real estate value as a contributor.

Of course the real issue is how people who want to stay in their homes can continue once health changes make their homes difficult and the assistance they need is too expensive, too hard to organize or just plain unavailable.

Providing for those folks (us) is the challenge and opportunity of Aging in Place.
