This brief outlines current housing challenges faced by older adults and potential areas for public health intervention. It summarizes existing programs that offer housing support for older adults and offers recommendations in each of the five key roles for public health.
Helping older adults live safe, independent, and productive lives requires government, community agencies, the healthcare sector, and families working together to support their residents, patients, and loved ones. The AFPHS initiative encourages, creates, and supports such partnerships.
