"Innovation in housing is shaped by and with the community. Innovative housing is not created for communities. It’s created with them "

Housing and Community Supports: Initiatives are underway to ensure that a range of affordable, comfortable, safe, suitable housing options are available to all residents. For older adults it is critical to provide options which promote aging in place, within one's home and community. Livable Dedham is exploring a range of innovative solutions to ensure that there are a range of housing options for Dedham's rapidly growing population of older adults. By 2030, 41% of Dedham's residents are projected to be age 55 or older. The range of options includes new development, accessory dwelling units, and home modification services for existing properties.
