Commission on Aging
The needs and expectations for housing change with age. Housing options in our communities should reflect these evolving needs and expectations.
For many older adults in Clark County, the housing stock can be expensive, lack accessible features, and inconveniently located for essential services, all of which make aging-in-place difficult.
The task force identified four challenges facing our aging population regarding housing. Check out the links below for information about these topics.
- Housing affordability
- Home design
- Housing choice
- Lack of information and communication about housing opportunities
Housing work committee
To combat these challenges in our communities, the Housing work committee is working on the strategies listed in Chapter 2 (PDF) of the Aging Readiness Plan. See below for the projects they are working on.
