According to the Brookings Institution the context of aging in place for a number of American urban areas is changing due to sharp increases in Asian and Hispanic immigration coupled with a large population of white non-Hispanic Baby Boomers that is remaining in suburban areas as they age (Frey, 2014). Miami is one of five U.S. metropolitan areas identified as having population growth largely driven by international migration patterns, which will ultimately lead to high concentrations of minority and foreign-born older residents. This demographic poses unique opportunities and challenges for urban planners and human service providers alike. This session will focus on the nature of aging in place in Miami, with specific detail on how issues of transportation, health and mental health care, housing, and cultural diversity are factors in addressing the complex needs of older adults in a dynamic, complex urban context. The speakers will provide perspectives of urban aging from a variety of viewpoints including that of a government liaison, human service planner and administrator, and direct service provider.
