The Best Type of Car for Older Adults — Getting into a sports car or many sedans requires, as one auto engineer describes, “a controlled fall into the seat and a climb out. A pickup is the reverse.” The seat height found in small SUVs is, as Goldilocks might declare, just right. Source: Detroit Free Press ►
Livability in the Rural Mountain West — Thanks in part to the LOR Foundation, which supports livability efforts in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico, this year’s AARP Livable Communities conference will include several sessions about livability needs and successes in rural areas.

Since the AARP Livable Communities team is busy preparing for our aforementioned conference, this newsletter won’t be published on Halloween or the Wednesday after Election Day.
We’ll publish again on November 14.
