Resources and Reference Materials on Older Adults

Addressing issues that arise with aging is a challenge regardless of background or circumstance, but it is particularly challenging for low-income and underserved communities. CHWs are in a unique position to serve this population because of their strong ties to the community and their in-depth knowledge of the culture within them.  MHP Salud implements Community Health Worker-led programs that focus on connecting older adults to health care and strengthening skills that allow them to live independently.  Through the evaluations of our own programs, and in collaboration with our partners,  we’ve developed these resources that outline the implementation and evaluation processes of CHW-led older adult programs.

Aging in Place refers to a person making a conscious decision to stay in the inhabitation of their choice for as long as they can with the comforts that are important to them. As people age in place, it may be necessary to add supplementary services to facilitate their living conditions and maintain their quality of life. This guide builds upon MHP Salud’s experience implementing the CHW model in aging in place programs and the expertise of the National Center for Equitable Care for Elders.
