How Can We Best Serve Our Seniors?
Housing older tenants presents unique challenges, as seniors can often be isolated and have limited access to resources. This facilitated dialogue will discuss common issues faced by non-profit housing providers, and how to provide useful, accurate information to their senior tenants. Participants will receive suggestions and resources designed to more easily resolve issues that are common to housing older tenants, such as declining health, elder abuse, nutritional and safety needs, evictions, and accessing community supports.
