Healthy Aging in Place: Integrated Service Models Making Impact

October 11, 2017

Webinar Looks at Residents Who Are Aging in Supportive Housing and What Providers Can Do to Leverage Effective Services to Improve the Quality of Life for Those Residents. 

As the population over 50 years old continues to grow so does their wish to remain and age safely within their communities.  Supportive housing presents a unique challenge because the older adults residing in it have a higher prevalence of fixed incomes, physical disabilities and medically-limited mobility.

Today CSH hosted a webinar highlighting unique health and housing partnerships delivering enhanced services to aging supportive housing residents struggling with chronic health conditions and intensive daily living needs. The webinar also helped participants gain a deeper understanding of the different financing structures providers have leveraged to deliver services tailored to supportive housing residents aging in place. Lastly, the topics of physical design challenges that serve as barriers to healthy aging were discussed, specifically how developers are responding to the mobility needs of their residents by improving accessibility to help maintain independence.
