An Update from the HUD Office of Policy Development & Research featuring Henry Cisneros, former Secretary of HUD
Increasing life expectancy, a declining birth rate, and the aging of the baby boom generation will dramatically increase the number and proportion of the U.S. population over the age of 62 in the coming decades. Aging of the population presents challenges and questions including where people will live and how they will obtain the support and care they will require as they grow older.
Attend this update to hear about these challenges and the economics of aging in place, social service demands, technology and physical requirements, community planning, and government programs. Come hear how housing can be a platform for improved lifestyles for the aging population and enable health care cost savings.
Following Secretary Cisneros’ remarks a panel will examine the issues.
- Jennifer Ho, Moderator, Senior Advisor on Housing and Services in the Office of the Secretary, HUD
- Judith Willett, National Director of the Village to Village Network
- Jane Hickie, Executive Director of the Stanford Center on Longevity
- John Wren, Director of the Center on Disability and Aging, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
