Abstract

This study examines the relationships between U.S. baby boomers’ desire to age in place and residential satisfaction with their housing unit, neighborhood, and access to services. An online survey was conducted and 403 valid responses were obtained. Respondents who had higher residential satisfaction with their housing unit and neighborhood were more likely to desire to age in place. However, satisfaction with access to services was not significantly related to desire to age in place. Results of the study suggest that housing practitioners and policy makers should consider offering services and implementing policies to support baby boomers’ desire to age in place.
