Presentation Transcript

  1. Advocacy for Housing With Services Models • Climate for Senior Housing funding is not good • This means we need to advocate even more strenuously • Housing With Services is a movement… we can’t wait until the climate improves • The financial cost of not acting is great, because things will get worse

  2. Advocacy for Housing With Services Models • Housing With Services is a new approach to service delivery. • Our advocacy strategy needs to reflect that our approach is new. • We cannot expect other constituencies and decision makers to support the new approach, at least initially.

  3. Why are we doing this? • The Tsunami is coming! We’re not ready! • HWS saves money: Front end investment saves a lot on the back end. • Housers need to Get in the Loop! • Mission-driven housers have responsibility to residents and their families. • People want to stay at home. • Aging in Place only works with community based services.

  4. Starting Out – New Coalition • Educate decision makers and opinion leaders • Elected officials • State Administration • Strategy should includes offense and defence • Build alliances

  5. Partners • Area Agencies on Aging • Home Health providers • Nursing Homes • Community Mental Health • Independent Living Centers • Adult Day; Meals on Wheels; Local Senior Centers; Transportation Networks, RSVP retired professionals, etc. • Medical Community (Memory Clinics)

  6. Partners • Address their concerns directly • Voice support for their issues • Look for areas of common concern • Bring additional resources • Be patient • Don’t back down

  7. Budget and policy • Budget is primary advocacy target • Policy issues • Structural changes • Changes to capital programs
