    Re-Imagining Living Environments Of The Future: Understanding The Needs, Desires, And Financial Realities Of Older Boomers, American Society on Aging

    An op-ed by Liddy Manson, project director, AgingWell Hub: “Ten thousand Boomers turn 65 every day in America, and their average life expectancy will be roughly 10 years longer than their parents. Those in the middle three quintiles of wealth have somewhere between 60 and 70 percent of their net worth tied up in their homes, most of which are more than 30 years old and are located in the suburbs. With much needed upgrades required on these homes, and senior housing options costing between $2500 and $10,000 per month, we are left to ask where the tens of millions of Boomers will live in their last two decades of life. Our conclusion? It is very likely that the living environment that will meet this population’s needs does not yet exist today.”
