Residents with special needs — including seniors and those who previously experienced homelessness — are especially vulnerable to the coronavirus. Explore strategies for mitigating the risk of infection in senior and supportive housing developments. Learn how owners, managers, and service providers are coordinating meals, sanitation measures, and resident engagement. Discuss the additional support needed in housing for these vulnerable populations, strategies to ensure safety for staff and residents, and how to adopt lessons learned as best practices.
