Adding a topical supplement to an existing national survey might be a useful approach when a large amount of new information is required or when there is a need to study a specific subpopulation that cannot be easily identified with existing information. In either case, an existing, large national survey could act as the screener. The existing p

This is the final report of a project that assesses the need for developing and fielding another national disability survey data collection effort. It presents the findings from three principal project activities designed to assess whether existing data are sufficient to answer key disability-related research questions identified by the staffs of

Health, Housing, and Service Supports for Three Groups of People Experiencing Chronic Homelessness. 3.1. How Care is Delivered
Members of all three groups may receive care and supports in a number of ways. The scope and intensity of supportive services to PSH tenants varies substantially from one provider or community to another, probably almost as much as it varies among members of Groups 1, 2, and 3, although funding limitations make it difficult for PSH programs to off

Public Housing Agencies and Permanent Supportive Housing for Chronically Homeless People. 6. Helping Homeless People Use Voucher Assistance for Permanent Supportive Housing
Once a household has come off the waiting list, been declared eligible, and been issued a voucher, the standard practice is that searching for housing is the responsibility of the household. This can be difficult for homeless people with health and behavioral health challenges. Furthermore, most landlords apply screening criteria related to credit
Public Housing Agencies and Permanent Supportive Housing for Chronically Homeless People. 4.2. Chicago
Chicago has a Ten Year Plan and a very active Continuum of Care that has long pursued a strategy of developing PSH. This collaborative planning process was facilitated by a national intermediary organization, the Corporation for Supportive Housing, and involves the CHA and a wide range of civic leaders, government and non-profit agencies, and othe
This Issue Paper looks at innovative ways that public housing agencies are supporting housing for formerly homeless people in the communities the researchers visited.

A Descriptive Analysis of the U.S. Department of Labor's Long-Term Care Registered Apprenticeship Programs. 1. Introduction
The United States faces a critical current and future need for long-term care workers to meet the demands of the aging population. Indeed, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) projects that home care personal care assistants and home health aides (HHAs) will be among the fastest growing occupations in coming years (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2009).

Characteristics of Long-Term Care Registered Apprenticeship Programs: Implications for Evaluation Design. Appendix A. CORE Competencies by LTC RAP
Core competencies taught in the Long-Term Care Registered Apprenticeship Program (LTC RAP) sites are presented below. In some cases, investigators were provided with a list of core competency training by the sites, and in other cases these lists were supplemented with a description of the specific courses in which these courses were taught. For ex
Characteristics of Long-Term Care Registered Apprenticeship Programs: Implications for Evaluation Design. 4.3. Progression of Apprentices through the Program
Senior staff, including supervisors, more experienced long-term care workers, nurses, and trainers play a role in monitoring and testing apprentices in all five sites, as discussed on Table 4 . Shadowing, or following and observing, more senior staff as they perform tasks during early training sessions occurs at both Developmental Services and Ho
Design of a Demonstration of Coordinated Housing, Health and Long-Term Care Services and Supports for Low-Income Older Adults. B. Examples of a Risk Based Model within Subsidized Housing
The risk-based model also requires communities with high volume of low-income older adults in affordable housing properties. In this case however, community selection would take into account other criteria as well such as higher than average clusters of very old (85+) and/or chronically ill older adults. The model could target services to one or m
Design of a Demonstration of Coordinated Housing, Health and Long-Term Care Services and Supports for Low-Income Older Adults. A. Examples of a Public Health Model within Subsidized Housing
The public health model would incorporate a full range of primary, acute, chronic care and long-term care services and support. Services organization and delivery could be based in and managed by a single free standing housing property or the corporate owner/sponsor of multiple housing properties within a region or within a nearby community agency
Design of a Demonstration of Coordinated Housing, Health and Long-Term Care Services and Supports for Low-Income Older Adults. VII. Potential Targeting and Services Delivery Models
Service delivery models could take numerous forms and focus on interventions at different points in a chronic health conditions/disability stage continuum. A more public health oriented model would target all low-income older adults in participating properties and the surrounding community with the goal of improving the health and quality of life
Design of a Demonstration of Coordinated Housing, Health and Long-Term Care Services and Supports for Low-Income Older Adults. I. Overview
In 2011, as the baby boomers begin to reach age of 65, their preference to remain as independent for as long as possible and to age in their communities underpins the conceptual framework for housing with services for older adults presented here. Consistent with the U.S.
Design of a Demonstration of Coordinated Housing, Health and Long-Term Care Services and Supports for Low-Income Older Adults
This conceptual framework examines the possible ways that housing sites can link health and long-term services and supports, and potential ways that HUD and HHS could design a demonstration of such a model. [31 PDF pages]
