Age-friendly communities are great places for people of all ages. — Getty Images

AARP surveys consistently find that the vast majority of older adults want to remain in their homes and community-at-large rather than move to a retirement village or similar environment. This archive contains resources about making communities work well for people of all ages, and especially for older adults.

The information listed below is presented in reverse chronological order by the source material's publication or release date and includes reports, case studies, tool kits and more.
