Housing

Housing needs change as we age, but it's possible for our homes and communities to be livable for people of all ages and life stages

All About ADUs

Commonly known as backyard bungalows, garage apartments and so-called granny flats, accessory dwelling units are small homes that exist on the same property lot as a single-family residence. 

All About Missing Middle Housing

In too many places, walkable, small- to mid-sized housing that's affordable for middle income households can't be found because it no longer exists.

The links on this page represent just some of what's available. 

Housing-related content can also be found via the archives and landing pages for the AARP Community Challenge, the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities, AARP International's Equity by Design: Global Dialogue and Equity by Design: Principles in Action series, and the AARP Public Policy Institute's Future of Housing website.
