Aging in Place

Where are the best places to live successfully as you get older? This study ranks the top 20 metro and rural areas.

Curiously, none of them are on the West Coast and only one, Gainesville, Fla., is in what might be considered a traditional retirement area. Interesting.

It turns out that most Americans want to stay put as they get older. I wrote recently about how contractors and remodelers can take advantage of the desire from aging homeowners to refurbish their houses to accommodate their changing needs.
