Seniors and persons with disabilities improve quality of life through health and independence at home and in the community.
WHY IT MATTERS
Low-income seniors and persons living with disabilities are at an increased risk for isolation, predation, and other conditions that negatively impact health and can lead to premature or unnecessary, and costly institutionalization. Keeping seniors and persons with disabilities in their own homes or in the care of loved ones, and socially active in the community, results in a better quality of life and may even increase life expectancy.
