Resources and Support for Older Adults Living at Home

The number of adults over 65 below the poverty line is increasing, which raises questions about how they’ll navigate aging in place.

To help this group, the NCOA created Resources and Support for Older Adults Living Alone: A Comprehensive Guide, which includes practical tips and resource recommendations from geriatric health experts and advocates, such as:

  • PACE programs, which use Medicare and Medicaid to help older adults get nursing home-level care
  • Benefits such as the Aid and Attendance pension that help veterans offset the costs of long-term care
  • NCOA’s BenefitsCheckUp tool which helps older adults identify their potential eligibility for benefits and programs
