Efforts to Enable Americans to Age in Place Are Expanding, Survey Shows
A new survey of hundreds of federally sponsored local agencies that assist aging Americans has found increased efforts to help the elderly remain in their homes as they grow older, a policy known as aging in place. A 2013 survey by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging found that more than 70 percent of local service providers now offer programs to help people find alternatives to nursing homes or other institutional care. That’s up from less than a third in 2008, the survey said. The increased focus on seeking alternatives to institutional care comes as the United States undergoes a dramatic demographic shift toward an older population. One response has been the rise of grassroots efforts to create supportive communities, such as “villages,” designed to meet the daily needs of older people. The survey of 618 agencies also found that their role has expanded to meet the federal Affordable Care Act’s goal of reducing the nation’s medical expenses by minimizing repeat hospital admissions. The survey suggests that the agencies have become key players in the ACA’s Care Transitions Program, which is designed to reduce costs by improving follow-up care for Medicare beneficiaries after their discharge from the hospital.
