"Home Sweet Home: Aging in Place with Shared Housing": Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at U-M (50+).

  community member   < less Study Group

Shared housing programs are making a re-emergence amidst the rapid aging of our nation's population. This is due in part to the desire of many older adults to "age in place;" or remain in the home as they age, rather than explore traditional senior housing options. This lecture will discuss the concept of shared housing, and look at a few programs from across the country, with an emphasis one right here in Michigan.
Brittney M. Williams, LLMSW, is a geriatric social worker, and the coordinator of the HomeShare Program in the Housing Bureau for Seniors at Michigan Medicine. The Study Group will be held Wednesday February 26.
