Housing is essential to safety and well-being and plays an important role in healthy aging. Most older adults want to age in place, yet our current homes may be unable to meet our needs as we age. The availability of appropriate, affordable housing with a choice of styles and locations that incorporate adaptive or Universal Design features will be essential for many of us to continue living independently. We also need to consider alternative living options such as shared and communal housing, which are not yet widely available in our community.

The Age-Friendly Sarasota County Action Plan includes the goals, objectives, and strategies for the "Housing" domain during the plan's implementation phase (2022–2025).
