Please find the slide deck shared during the event attached. 

On April 27, 2022, the third session of the Age-Friendly Housing Series shared how the spaces people live in impact their independence, how accessible architecture can support aging in place, and trade-offs that older adults face when they want to renovate their homes to make them more accessible. Participants learned about work that can support communities in diversifying their housing stock and the challenges and opportunities in encouraging more accessible market housing.
