Successful Administration of Senior Housing
Working with Elderly Residents


August 1992 | 224 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Responding to the growing population of older persons and the subsequent interest in providing progressive living environments, Succcessful Administration of Senior Housing is a comprehensive resource offering an increased awareness of management strategies and tools to better respond to frailty among elderly tenants. This insightful volume outlines ways of better serving elderly tenants and highlights the importance of collaboration among housing managers, social service providers, and health care professionals to more effectively and humanely serve the needs of elderly renters. To date, housing professionals have received little concrete help or assistance from experts, public policymakers or gerontologists; Successful Administration of Senior Housing is a welcome addition that will help fill this void by outlining ways to better manage the complex problems and issues that emerge as elderly tenants experience increased needs for supportive services. This helpful volume was written for housing professionals, social service providers and health care professionals who work with older persons living in age-segregated housing. It will also be useful in the academic setting for continuing education programs for housing managers and social service providers. "Sheehan addresses the issue of managing housing for the elderly from a 'care management' perspective. She provides a creditable orientation to the unique housing needs of the elderly and effectively incorporates relevant research in each of the book's chapters. . . .
