Packaging supportive services with housing a pressing issue for older adults

The population of older adults is expected to explode in the coming years. Linking Housing and Services for Older Adults: Obstacles, Options, and Opportunities examines a crucial, complex, and often overlooked issue for policymakers and the public at large: older adults' increasing needs for housing and supportive long-term care services. As baby boomers strive to help their parents make difficult decisions about their options, pressure mounts for policymakers to develop appropriate housing and services. This book brings together respected experts to discuss the answers to difficult questions about meeting the housing and support service needs of aging adults.

Linking Housing and Services for Older Adults: Obstacles, Options, and Opportunities explores in-depth the tough issues pertaining to which populations are presently being served, what their needs are, and who is being left out. You'll learn exactly what types of services are available, who is providing them, and how are they packaged. From residential care to assisted living to institutional care, this book addresses all facets of the complicated problems of providing availability to fulfill need. This important source presents insightful analysis of the total range of issues and the challenges to progress as well as offering specific recommendations to effectively offer housing and vital long-term care supportive services to older adults.

Linking Housing and Services for Older Adults: Obstacles, Options, and Opportunities discusses in detail:
the argument for increased development of supportive housing for older adults and the barriers preventing it
the issues related to providing a variety of housing and service options to the Medicaid population
two case studies that illustrate how policies aimed at linking housing and services play out at the state and local level and the need for strong leadership and the ability to develop key partnerships as vital aspects for success
the interrelationship of factors regarding nursing home admission, the availability of subsidized housing, and Medicaid eligibility
the need for care management to be holistic including environmental care assessment, repair, and renovation management in addition to current long-term care settings
creating affordable assisted living facilities for older persons receiving Medicaid services
the successful components of the national Coming Home Program
four case studies emphasizing different finance and regulatory approaches providing lessons learned for developers, state agencies, and advocates of affordable assisted living

This vital educational resource is also an essential reference for local, state, and national policymakers, housing officials, and long-term care providers.
