Video: Creating 'Lifelong Housing'

Oregon's Rogue Valley has made age- and accessibility-friendly housing a regional priority

The Lifelong Housing Certification Program was created by the Rogue Valley Council of Governments as a voluntary certification process for evaluating the long-term accessibility and adaptability of a new construction home.

Developed in partnership with AARP Oregon, the program is helping to meet the growing market demand for accessible housing in central Oregon and enable older adults and people with disabilities to live safely and independently. In the Twin Creeks housing development, "lifelong housing" is the rule, not the exception.

(After watching the video, learn more about the program by reading the AARP Livable Communities article "How to Find an Age-Friendly Home" and viewing the slidehow "Take a Tour of Our 'Lifelong' Home.")
