As we were working on this issue on financing long-term services and supports (LTSS), we met and talked with some amazing people both at LeadingAge California member communities and beyond who are not only providing critical health education and desperately needed care and services to a vulnerable population, but promoting incremental, but ultimately monumental change on the behavioral and policy level.
In our feature article, “Think You Have Retirement Covered? Probably Not.” our COO Eric Dowdy and Policy Director Jedd Hampton provide an overview of what long-term services and supports (LTSS) really are, discuss some of the common myths around LTSS – who needs it, who pays for it – and efforts at both the state and federal level to address this pressing issue.
We also sit down with LeadingAge California members Avenidas in the East Bay, and LifeSTEPS in Sacramento, to learn more about their programs and how they help local seniors “age in place.”
