Roundtable #1: SENIORS AT RISK

Post-pandemic housing crisis in Southern Passaic County

More than 20 million older adults in the U.S. are living in or near poverty.
As the pandemic intensified the economic conditions that already make it hard for seniors to age with comfort and dignity, we can track the emerging crisis by looking at the housing market. Seniors are becoming increasingly priced out of their homes or left unable to make basic repairs and modifications to make their space more livable. This economic uncertainty puts a greater number of seniors at risk of chronic health issues that can compromise quality of life or lead to premature death.


Each member of our panel is taking a different approach to address health inequities among seniors living in Passaic County.
