Living Alone with Alzheimer’s: Housing Innovation Summit --- Las Vegas NV, Feb 27, 2020
20% of persons with dementia live alone and over a third of persons over age 70 and older in Las Vegas/Clark County -the fastest growing type of household at greatest risk of Alzheimer’s or other dementia—live alone. Our summit last year and continued focus on this population have led us to conclude that any community conversation about living well alone with dementia must look at innovation in housing.
The Living Alone Summit agenda will include conversations with persons who are navigating life with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia, an overview of the numbers and types of single person households they live in our community. Hear about emerging innovations in supportive housing and join in the community conversation toward solutions to prevent more homelessness among this group of seniors and to improve the lives of those living alone with dementia. Providers from social services, health care and technology sectors will be featured.
