Supportive Services Programs in Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities. APPENDIX 1. Annotated Review of the Literature on Housing with Services for Older People Who Age in Place

This annotated review focuses on research related to programs that bring community services into existing housing to foster aging in place and maximize older people's independence in the community. Examples of these programs include service programs in Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORCs), support services in public housing, and "cluster care," where a group of home care agency workers serve clients who live in close proximity to one another. Research about facilities that were originally designed to provide long-term care, such as most assisted living facilities, continuing care retirement communities, and nursing facilities, are not part of the literature review. The annotated review also includes available descriptions of prominent NORCs.

The literature for NORCs is summarized first, followed by support services in public housing programs, cluster care, and assisted living programs that bring services to existing housing. In each section, articles are presented in reverse chronological order. When articles by the same author repeat information or concepts, the repetition is eliminated.
