Nursing homes can be institutional; “aging in place” often leads to loneliness. What’s needed as our population gets older, according to this publication,are new design-based solutions. The authors make the case that the existing low-density residential grids can be retrofitted to provide for more vibrant senior living. Adaptations like the “hyper-porch” connect housing and promote interaction, while sitting porches to face each other often increases security. Placing kitchen gardens in front yards encourages both mobility and sociability for the elderly - and gives them fresh produce, too.
