NAHRO would like to share information on an upcoming webinar conducted by Community Catalyst on aging in place for low-income and chronically ill seniors. Below is the invitation from Community Catalyst for their webinar on Thursday, December 1, 2016, at 1pm to 2:30pm eastern time.
Aging in Place: Integrating Health and Housing for Low-Income and Chronically Ill Seniors
Thursday, December 1, 2016 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm EDT
This is the third webinar in a series Community Catalyst is hosting to engage with national, regional, state and local partners who are working or want to start working in the health and housing space.
This call will provide an overview of the issue from what is being discussed and worked on from the federal, state and local levels, featuring leaders in these areas.
Speakers will discuss the growing research and recognition that the aging population requires more effective integration of housing and health care systems and highlight impact that affordable housing has on older adults’ ability to live at home and in the community. There will be ample time for questions and answers between participants and speakers, allowing for dialogue and learning for those working in both the health and housing areas.
This webinar will feature:
- Robyn Stone, Senior VP of Research and Executive Director, LeadingAge Center for Applied Research
- Nancy Archibald, Senior Program/Communications Officer, Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS)
- Marty Lynch, Executive Director, CEO of Lifelong Medical Care and the Over 60 Health Center, Berkeley, CA
In response to the growing national and local discourse about the connections between housing and health outcomes, we at Community Catalyst see a clear interest in identifying the role health policy advocates can play in protecting and expanding access to quality, affordable and appropriate housing for vulnerable populations. In addition to the demonstrable connections between housing and health outcomes, housing is a fundamental human right that is under threat in many communities.
Please RSVP here to participate on December 1st.
We hope you will join us in this opportunity to connect stakeholders working on initiatives related to aging in place for low-income and chronically ill seniors with those from other sectors to address housing issues.
Carol Regan, Senior Advisor
