The Future of Home Sweet Home: Part II (Episode #4021)

KQED Life: Sun, Aug 25, 2013 -- 12:00 PM

Guests: James Corless, Director of Transportation for America; Katherine Freund, Founder Independent Transportation Network.
In the second part of our series, we take a look at another key issue of "aging-in-place," transportation. More and more Americans are choosing to retire close to home, and with that choice comes the added concern of mobility. Limited funding from the federal government is forcing state and local governments, as well as many non-profits, to come up with ways to keep citizens on the move. Joining us in the studio is James Corless, the Director of Transportation for America, and Katherine Freund, the founder of Independent Transportation Network. Mr. Corless discusses the current state of the US transportation system and what the future has in-store.
Also, Independent Transportation Network's founder, Katherine Freund, details their innovative nationwide service that's helping many Americans get around.
Segment 3: Turning to 2 Wheels.

The Future of Home Sweet Home: Part I (Episode #4020)

KQED Life: Sun, Aug 18, 2013 -- 12:00 PM

Guests: Ellen Dunham-Jones, Professor of Architecture and Urban Design at Georgia Tech and co-author of "Retrofitting Suburbia"; Parris Glendening, Former Governor of Maryland and President of Smart Growth America's Leadership Institute; John Salmen, Architect and Accessibility Specialist
Moving to warmer climates and a slower pace of life was once the norm when it came to retirement. Since the 1990s, however, close to 90% of older Americans have decided to stay in the same county they've been living in, if not in the very same home. A willingness to stay close to family and friends has led many seniors to consider "aging-in-place." In the first part of our "The Future of Home Sweet Home" series; we take a look at the issue of housing. With many people residing in single family homes in suburbia, there is now a challenge to meet the needs of an aging population.
