Technology, Accessibility & Transportation

Every day there are new devices, services and software geared toward the burgeoning population of elders—most of whom reportedly want to remain at home in the community. But which “smart home” technology actually works to help elders remain home longer? What’s the latest in volunteer car sharing or green building near transportation hubs? What about co-housing for women living alone? How long can someone with dementia remain on their own? At what point can older adults no longer drive? Our members are in the field testing models and passing the results along to you. Check this topic page often, as this realm is ever-changing.

As baby boomers age, the issue of continued mobility will grow. Ensuring that transportation exists for this growing population, as a part of a community’s infrastructure, must be a priority for transportation policymakers and planners. Transportation is an essential part of the community infrastructure that individuals need in order to gain access to the goods, services, and social contacts that support their day-to-day existence and quality of life.

You are invited to join ASA and community leaders for a conversation on “Transportation for Independent Living.”

This ASA Washington, DC Roundtable will be a great opportunity to learn from experts and network with colleagues. You will leave the session with awareness that transportation for independent living is bigger than just senior transportation.

Our outstanding presenters will stimulate your thinking about what the Washington, DC Metropolitan area can do to increase and expand transportation for older adults.

They will provide information about national trends in senior transportation and funding and examples of successful innovative local program models.
