When asked what one change they would make in their county to help older adults age in place, 14 per- cent said housing. Older adults living in Eagle County report experiencing a lack of variety in housing options, particularly those that are senior-specific. “[There are] waiting lists for Seniors on Broadway,” said one individual. “It’s challenging to find a place to live that has facilities for seniors. [I am] amazed at how few places there are for seniors compared to Min- nesota.” Others expressed a desire for more resources to help with maintenance and upkeep projects, such as snow removal, yard work, and small home repairs.
