ILC – Australia symposium, Session 3385 6.00-7.30pm, IAGG 2017 – San Francisco
This symposium invited researchers, service providers, and advocacy organizations to consider changes in housing in late life, and how housing affects people’s access to care as they age.
Individuals, service providers, and governments share a common goal to enable older people to remain at home for as long as possible. However, many older people need, or choose, to move to smaller or more supportive accommodation as they age and as they encounter changes in their needs and capacities. This symposium discussed housing needs of older people, age friendly housing options, and how housing affects access to community supports and services. The symposium considered increasing risk of homelessness among older people, and how the care needs of these people can be met. The discussion had a particular focus on the needs of women, single older men, and people with precarious housing tenure.
