Housing remains one of the most critical decisions that an older adult makes. What opportunities are lost when assumptions are made about a person’s housing needs or wants? What risks are taken by acting on those assumptions? How do we work to change assumptions and promote housing choice and opportunity for seniors? This workshop will open with a legal update featuring fair housing cases in senior housing from civil rights attorney Yiyang Wu (Associate, Relman, Dane & Colfax). Alan Headbloom (Owner – Headbloom Cross-Cultural Communication) will join the panel to highlight common assumptions made based on a person’s age or disability, to provide an understanding of cultural assumptions, and to assist participants in finding ways to identify and challenge such behavior. This workshop is made possible through the support of the Kent County Senior Millage.
