EPA Guide to Smart Growth and Active Aging

If you are currently planning your retirement or reassessing your retirement plans in light of today’s economy, the EPA publication, Growing Smarter, Living Healthier:  A Guide to Smart Growth and Active Aging offers new and different perspectives on retirement. 

Want a healthier lifestyle?  You might want to reconsider that house out in the country.  Unless you are planning to be a farmer, an urban lifestyle might be not only more beneficial to the environment but actually healthier for you. 

Want to avoid having to move to an assisted living facility?  Again, think ‘outside the box’ with ideas from EPA and you may be able to live in your own home longer. 

This booklet is chocked full of excellent information.  Check it out at http://www.epa.gov/aging/bhc/guide/2009_Aging.pdf
