Housing and supportive services

Housing and Supportive Services

  • Public preference for aging in place is overwhelming, but has major challenges:

    • Fragmentation of services available

    • Issues of financing and coordination on local level

    • Lack of affordable supportive housing options

    • Nursing Homes often only option for very low income elderly

Creating successful models and exploring options

Creating Successful Models and Exploring Options

  • Housing + Services Options

  • Key Factors to Consider

  • What Happens When Housing and Services Cannot Meet the Resident’s Needs

  • Successful Models


Models of housing with services

Models of Housing with Services

  • Housing & Program of All Inclusive Care for the Elderly (P.A.C.E.)

  • HUD Assisted Living Conversion Program (A.L.C.P.)

  • Housing and Contracted Services: HCBS

  • Housing-preference for Olmstead


Assisted living conversion program

Assisted Living Conversion Program

  • Grant funds the physical costs of converting some or all of the units into an ALF

  • Funding for supportive services paid for by residents, foundations, Medicaid, SSI, State or Area Agency on Aging, etc.


Housing linked to services

Housing Linked to Services

  • Connect with local area agencies on aging

  • Partner with home and community-based services providers

  • Co-location

  • Partnering with State to give priority to Olmstead-related policies


In the future

In the Future

  • “Housers” unlikely to be the licensed provider until the public funding is sufficient to support the service mandate (partnerships with HCBS providers)

  • The amount of service provided will expand and decrease with the availability of public funding sources

  • Service programs will be geared towards an aging-in-place philosophy


Talent workforce availability

Talent/Workforce Availability

  • New talent needed from the boardroom to the bedside

  • Workforce will become more diverse; more immigration

  • Management of new workforce will require new skills and greater racial/ethnic diversity

  • Workers will need to adapt to technology

  • Family caregivers will need training to keep people at home
