The National Center on Law & Elder Rights has opened registration for an upcoming webinar on June 17 starting at noon eastern. What it Takes to Age in Place: Bringing Housing and Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Together will cover:
Most people want to age in place and stay near their friends and family and in their community. This ideal can become complicated when housing becomes unstable or unaffordable, or when supportive services are not available in the home and community. This training will explore the intersection of health and housing to support aging in place. It will provide information about Medicaid home and community-based services, as well as what housing-related services can be funded through Medicaid.
1. Understand the connection between health and housing;
2. Learn the different ways that Medicaid can fund HCBS to keep people in their homes or create housing for people experiencing homelessness; and
3. Hear about examples of different community models that have integrated housing and health care to support housing stability, including for previously homeless older adults.
