Caring for our aging homeless population: Challenges and solutions

Caring for our aging homeless population: Challenges and solutions

Older adults make up half of all people in housing programs for the homeless. As the senior population ages and the shortage of affordable housing worsens, the problem could grow much worse in the coming years. This will put tremendous strains on Medicare, Medicaid, hospitals, and many public services. 

Without a plan to reverse this trend, the nation is likely to see a growing population of homeless adults over the age of 50 who face:

  • Dual enrollment in Medicaid and Medicare
  • Higher incidence of chronic illness and emergency room use
  • Lower life expectancy

One answer to the problem is "service-rich" housing that efficiently meet the needs of seniors most at risk. Promising research is pointing out ways to implement this solution affordably and bring savings to states and communities. This webinar will detail the extent of the problem, the potential solutions, and ways to bring components of this model to your organization or community.
