Seniors with Disabilities

Issues affecting seniors and people with disabilities often overlap, and Access Living has built coalitions with senior groups in order to achieve common goals.

Over the past few years, Access Living has partnered with groups like Jane Addams Senior Caucus and individuals with the senior community on issues such as Social Security, Long–Term Health Care, Housing and Transportation.

The Home Again Program offers assistance in leaving nursing homes for people over the age of 60. The program helps people to move into a furnished apartment after leaving the nursing home and provides case management as the person adjusts to community living.
