Aging in Every Place: Supportive Service Programs for High and Low Density Communities

Janet Viveiros, Maya Brennan

As the Baby Boom generation ages, the number of older adults living in America will double by 2050, with nearly 19 million of those adults age 85 or older. Authors Maya Brennan and Janet Viveiros examine the success that home-and community-based supportive service programs have on older adult populations aged 65 or older to maintain their quality of life as they age in their homes, whether those homes are in cities, suburbs, or rural America. Home- and community-based supportive service programs offer many types of assistance, often including case management, medical services, social activities and personal care assistance, which address difficulty completing essential tasks like eating, bathing, dressing and walking. Some programs also include home safety evaluations, help with minor home repairs, and other services to increase the suitability of older adults’ homes.
