1.03 Assisting Older Adults in Homelessness Systems

4:00 PM–5:15 PM Jul 17, 2023 (US - Eastern)

Lincoln East

Description

The traditional way of providing services for people experiencing homelessness must be adapted for an aging population. This means Continuums of Care may need to make modifications to their coordinated entry process. Additionally, shelter staff must often utilize a different set of skills and modify shelter environments and program elements. Further, those who participate in housing programs like permanent supportive housing and Rapid Re-Housing typically need more intensive case management support to age in place effectively. Join us as this workshop highlights practices and partnerships that can support the needs of older adults and those living with other complex care needs.
