Aging in Cambridge
The Community Development Department and the Department of Human Service Programs in 2010 completed reports that explore the needs of the senior population.
In the report Aging in the Cambridge Community the Department of Human Services outlines the range of services available to seniors in Cambridge, and the Community Development Department discusses key issues in the planning areas of transportation, economic development, zoning, parks and housing.
At the same time, the Community Development Department completed a report entitled Housing Options for Older Cantabrigians that provides a demographic review of the Cambridge residents 55 and older and an assessment of their existing housing options. This report was the first part of a two stage process.
The second part of the review of housing needs of elders was conducted through the 2011 Silver Ribbon Commission. Read the report of the Commission Creating a Vision: Cambridge as an Aging Friendly Community: Housing Options 2012-2030.
