More Than a Neighborhood: A Survey of Service Needs and Interest in a Community Village Among Lansing, Michigan Residents Age 45+

Americans are aging and living longer. Between 2006 and 2030, the U.S. population of adults aged 65+ will nearly double from 37 million to 71.5 million. The Social Security Administration estimates that today a 45 year old adult has an average life expectancy of 34 additional years.    In 2010, one in three Lansing adults (33% or 38,200 residents) was age 45 years or older.  This demographic trend of living longer presents major challenges for meeting the needs of the older population who overwhelmingly prefer to receive services and supports within their homes or communities. A Village—a consumer-driven, person centered approach to aging in place that promotes community and independence—offers an alternative to institutional care.

AARP Michigan and the NorthWest Initiative are dedicating time and resources to exploring the current and future needs of Lansing residents in relation to the feasibility of offering Village-type services in Lansing. AARP Michigan and the NorthWest Initiative commissioned a mail survey of Lansing residents to help map out current and future personal needs as well as interest in a Lansing Village in order to provide a direction for the future.
