Aging and Homelessness

C I Cohen. Gerontologist.


Aging homeless persons have been largely neglected in the gerontological and homeless literature. This article presents an overview of homelessness and aging within the context of a testable, provisional model for explaining homelessness in this population. The author proposes 16 individual and 5 structural and programmatic variables that contribute to the etiology and sustenance of homelessness among aging persons.
