Design of a Demonstration of Coordinated Housing, Health and Long-Term Care Services and Supports for Low-Income Older Adults. C. Target Population

05/11/2011

The demonstration will target low and modest-income older adults who qualify for federal housing subsidies, including senior residents of Section 202 properties, public housing, seniors who obtain housing through Section 8 vouchers and older adults living in Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) properties. Seniors with similar income characteristics living in close proximity to participating housing properties will also be recruited into the demonstrations. Within this broad population, the design team is considering the advantages and disadvantages of targeting some or all of the following types of sub-groups, dependent upon the service delivery model selected:

  • Individuals with modest activity of daily living (ADL)/instrumental activity of daily living (IADL) impairments at risk for falls, medication mismanagement, etc.

  • Individuals with multiple chronic diseases and significant disability.

  • High Medicare spenders.

  • Healthy/well older adults who may benefit from preventative and wellness services.
