Invite you to join in a series of discussions on current housing policy issues

Please join us for a discussion on Seniors' Housing 

Seniors face a host of housing challenges. Many seek to age in place, but are in contexts that are economically or practically unsustainable. Few systems exist to allow property rich/cash poor seniors to transition well. Housing is less and less affordable, especially to those on fixed incomes. The aging process is rife with challenging transitions from houses to apartments, from apartments to seniors homes, from seniors homes to long term care, and the intersection of housing and health are poorly coordinated. How do we build systems that are more manageable and navigable, producing better outcomes in housing and health and quality of life?


Introductions 3:00-3:10
