In 2017, Enterprise Community Partners launched the Healthy Aging in Affordable Housing Demonstration Project to support owners of affordable housing to address the needs of elderly residents who are aging in place, and to create
the evidence base for systems change within the affordable housing industry around senior housing.
The Demonstration provides service connection, physical modifications to apartments to make them more accessible to residents with mobility or perception impairments, and a housing relocation program — a suite of interventions
aimed at facilitating healthy aging among low-income older adults residing in affordable housing.
The Demonstration connects residents to professional occupational therapy, case management, benefit counseling and other social services, improves their home environments to support independence and prevent fall injury, and
assists frail seniors living on upper floors of walk-up buildings relocate to more accessible apartments.
