The study identified perceptions of livability among New Haven, CT, city-dwelling residents as they age. Five emerging themes resulted from the initial domains discussed, including accessibility, affordability, social opportunity, stigma, and future planning. Implications include opportunities for consultative services and advocacy with both residents and local town officials to eliminate barriers and optimize strengths of a community's livability.
