A Synthesis of Findings from the Study of Affordable Housing plus Services for Low- and Modest-Income Older Adults
AbstractWith the relationship between increasing age, chronic illness and disability, and growing long-term care needs well documented, new models of delivering health-related and supportive services are being sought that are attractive and affordable to low- and modest-income older adults. One promising but underexplored strategy, affordable housing plus services (AHPS), links older residents of subsidized multiunit housing to health and supportive services so that they can "age in place." The U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the A.M. McGregor Home in Cleveland, Ohio, funded the Institute for the Future of Aging Services (IFAS), the policy and applied research arm of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA), to examine the potential of AHPS strategies for meeting long-term care needs of low- and modest-income seniors.
