Henry Cisneros on Housing for Older Americans Henry Cisneros talked about the housing needs of seniors, as well as a report released by the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies which examined this issue. He shared a personal story about his 90-year-old mother’s mental care needs and the long waiting lists he and his sister encountered when searching for a facility for her.

Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies and the AARP Foundation hosted a discussion on the housing needs of senior citizens. Some of the issues being examined included affordability, long-term health care, community engagement, seniors' ability to maintain their independence, and safety issues.

This was the keynote speech at this event co-sponsored by the AARP Foundation to release a report from Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies, Housing America’s Older Adults: Meeting the Needs of an Aging Population. It was held at the Washington Court Hotel. close
