Working With Homeless Older Adults: A Care Manager's Perspective
An MSW Area of Emphasis in Aging (AEA) Scholars Event
Date & Time:
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Summit Classroom Building 324
University of St. Thomas Campus, St. Paul
The MSW Area of Emphasis in Aging (AEA) Scholars will host a talk on working with homelessness presented by Marilyn Cooper. With the growing lack of affordable housing, persons living at or near the poverty level are at increased risk for becoming homeless. Devastating at any age, for older adults becoming homeless is even more dangerous because of aging-related concerns across the biopsychosocial spectrum. Social workers play a critical role in serving this at-risk population in addressing challenges and helping them access the services they need.
Please join the AEA Program and Marilyn Cooper, a St. Kate's - St. Thomas MSW alumna and Care Manager at Catholic Charities, talk about her work with homeless older adults at the Dororthy Day Center in downtown Saint Paul.
