Communities are not suited to an aging population and indeed, isolation, and transportation are going to be problematic, indeed, they already are.
One of the challenges, I have argued before, is that people staying in detached homes in car-dependent suburbs for as long “as they would like to” is actually part of the problem – the other part is that we don’t have good alternatives to staying in car-dependent suburban environments nor do we have trusted pathways to get viable alternatives.
Staying in a car-dependent, low-density, low-service environment could curtail the length of time that people can live independently in the community and hasten their need for housing options like LTC, retirement homes, etc.
