You don't want to miss this episode ... 
Older adults and individuals with disabilities share desires to live independently in the community and age with dignity and respect. However, our current system of long-term services and supports (LTSS) forces individuals to impoverish themselves, places enormous burdens on unpaid family caregivers, and is based towards nursing homes and institutional services.

This epsiode is the first of a two-part conversation with the National Council on Aging. In this episode, Joe Caldwell, Director of Long-Term Services and Supports, will discuss:

  • Important community living policy issues for older adults, including LTSS financing, access to Medicaid home and community-based services, and healthy aging and falls prevention.
  • Collaboration among national aging and disability organizations to advance community-living policy
