But prisons are not designed to serve older adults’ health needs, and those who are returning to the community often face discrimination, isolation, and a lack of services. The Trust’s program officer for older adults, Rachel Pardoe, speaks with the director of Release Aging People in Prison (RAPP), Jose Hamza Saldaña, who was released from state prison in 2018 after 38 years and four parole-board denials.
