This guidebook is intended for older adults who are interested in how our communities work and how we might help them become more age-friendly. Many of us have longed for the kind of age-friendly neighborhood that has different types of homes for people at different stages of life; walking paths and public transit to make it easy to get around without a car; and parks, shops, services, and homes that are closer together. Older adults are finding that by designing new neighborhoods differently--as well as redeveloping existing neighborhoods and roadways--we can make places that are healthier for ourselves, our neighbors, and the environment.
