Boomers Plan to Age in Place, but Are Unprepared to Do So

More than 86 percent of the homeowners surveyed in the report are familiar with common aging-related renovations, but less than one-quarter (22 percent) have completed an aging-related project. The report discusses the need for a new dialogue about aging in place and suggests three solutions to achieve this: change perception, focus on livability, and maximize smart-home technology.
