Affordable Housing Plus Services for Vulnerable Elders

Washington, DC
Hosted By:

With honorary host Senator Susan Collins, Chairman, Senate Special Committee on Aging, LeadingAge will present a briefing on how affordable senior housing plus services strategies can help address the social, health and long-term services and supports policy concerns associated with the rapidly growing low-income older adult population.

Studies show that affordable senior housing can be an effective platform for allowing vulnerable older to maintain their health and quality of life and age successfully in their community, while helping control growth in Medicare and Medicaid expenditures.

At the briefing, practitioners will discuss their strategies, which are helping to address high-risk factors such as medication complications and non-compliance, inadequate transitional care, and management of multiple chronic health conditions through population health management, moved care coordination, and interprofessional collaboration between housing, health and social service providers.

Speakers will include:

  • Katie Smith Sloan, CEO of LeadingAge
  • Dr. Robyn Stone, Senior Vice President of Research at LeadingAge
  • Howard Klink, Project Director, Housing with Services, LLC, Portland, OR
  • Pam Parsons, Clinical Associate Professor and Director for Practice and Community Engagement, Department of Family and Community Health Nursing, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA
  • Diane Burfeindt, Vice President,Population Health Management and Affordable Housing, Presbyterian Senior Living, Dillsburg, PA
