New Recommendations Focus is on Aging in Supportive Housing
CSH has been leading an Aging in Supportive Housing Learning Collaborative for the past year to determine best practices for serving an aging population in supportive housing. “Aging” is not a specific supportive housing population, but there are unique service needs and programs to best serve older people who are formerly homeless and/or leaving institutions. To that end, and on behalf of New York’s best minds in this field, CSH is sharing a brief compilation of key recommendations we recently made to the New York City Supportive Housing Task Force. A dozen organizations dedicated to promoting health and stability for our most vulnerable residents believe these recommendations support promising, healthy aging-in-place practices for future supportive housing initiatives. Also, a Core Competencies Toolkit will be released this spring and it will provide more detail on program models for aging in supportive housing.
