AARP video podcast: "Housing Options for Caregivers"

Washington's "Caring for Caregivers" video podcast series features discussions with local experts, community leaders, and caregivers just like you on a range of topics to help you along your caregiving journey.

This month we're talking about housing options for caregivers. AARP surveys consistently find that older adults want to remain in their current homes and communities for as long as possible. But our needs can change as we age, and most houses and apartments are designed for young, able-bodied adults and don’t meet the needs of older residents or people with disabilities.

Claire Petersky is an expert on housing solutions with the Washington State Housing Finance Commission, and she's the manager of the Multifamily Housing & Community Facilities Division. Claire joins AARP Washington State Director Marguerite Ro for a discussion on how caregiving at home can be more possible and where we can go in the future.
