AiA16 General Session

The Future of Community-Based Services for Older Adults and Their Families

Sunday, March 20 | 5:30–6:30 PM

Older Americans Act funding is unable to keep pace with the future costs and demands for services of a growing population of older adults aging in community. The United States has a vast infrastructure of service organizations available to assist older adults who have relied on a federal grant funding model to underwrite the payment of older adult programs. Now is the time to reframe organizational strategies to operate collaboratively in networks of service providers in a managed care environment—moving to revenue diversification models using evidence-based practices.

In this general session, learn from visionary leaders whose goal is to improve older adult health by helping the field of aging services migrate toward forming integrated networks for medical and social services. The ultimate goal of this transformation is to serve a greater population of aging adults while improving health outcomes at a lower cost.

Presenters:


Kathy Greenlee, JD, Administrator, Administration for Community Living and Assistant Secretary for Aging, U.S. Administration on Aging

June Simmons, MSW, President & CEO, Partners in Care Foundation
