    Re-Imagining Aging in Community  

    An aging America has profound impacts on communities that we are only beginning to comprehend. There is also uncertainty about the ability of traditional societal institutions to adapt to the needs of an aging society as the complex web of roles, norms, values and structures are rapidly changing. Fiscal constraints demand new pathways to encourage resource investments that strengthen aging-in-community. In this session, speakers will focus on: (1) disruptive advances in transportation technology and a new paradigm of ‘mobility as a service’; (2) innovative new tools to finance the growth and meet the demands of an aging community; and, (3) smart initiatives for cost-effective service delivery to mobilize resources for developing more age-friendly environments. Participants will: 1. Explore community-based solutions that engage the social layer of the community to address service delivery for all ages 2. Learn how to harness disruptive technologies in our transportation system to create a new paradigm of ‘mobility as a service’; thus, expanding mobility to those disenfranchised under the current transportation framework, and 3. Examine new tools like the Age Strong fund and pay-for-performance options to finance aging communities and leverage strategic public/private investment while impacting whole person outcomes.
