Prisons are not designed for adults who are older in age. There are no accessibility points, the showers are ill-designed, and the environment overall serves as a detriment to the mental and physical state of the inmate.

RAPP: Releasing Aging People in Prison is a campaign with a focus on elderly populations in Prison. They target issues such as lack of access and care in prisons. Their aging re-entry task force aims to provide services and retirement aids when released.
