Housing & Health Equity for Older Adults: Findings from the COVID-19 RECAPP Report

October 6, 2022 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm EDT

In addition to its devastating effects on health and mortality, the COVID-19 pandemic produced a complex and interconnected set of social challenges across the US. Older adults living in the community faced social isolation and disruptions in access to food, medical care, and other goods and services during stay-at-home orders. In response, organizations that support older people—housing and service providers, community organizations, government agencies, and others—improvised solutions to address these challenges.
