Disadvantaged older adults living in non-family situations are more likely to have less economic security, less social support, and less choice in housing. Older adults who live in poverty and are precariously housed are more likely to be chronically ill, live with multiple illnesses, have poor nutrition, high stress and loneliness, all of which are factors of social exclusion.
"When I was struggling, BVAA provided me the support and access to resources in my community that I needed."
BVAA offers supportive services for income, housing, food security, social support, and health care which mitigate the effects of social exclusion and isolation experienced by older adults. Our programs are designed to improve financial literacy and improve older adults’ capacity to manage their own finances effectively, and resist falling victim to financial fraud.
