This course highlights some of the more important changes that need to be addressed in meeting accessibility requirements for those that are aging and have disabilities in communities and cities. Today more than 46 million Americans are over the age of 65 and this number will continue to grow each year. By 2035, 78 million people will be 65 years and older in the U.S.
