ASPE research identifies improved care coordination for older adults in affordable housing

ASPE-HUD research has shown that older adults in HUD-assisted housing include a large number of people with chronic health needs and/or high-risk individuals. In general, older adults receiving housing assistance report being in poorer health, having more chronic conditions, and experiencing a higher number of limitations in activities of daily living (ADL) than renters in unassisted housing. The Support and Services at Home (SASH) program in Vermont is a promising approach to providing support services and care coordination to older adults and individuals with disabilities, using affordable housing properties as a platform for service delivery. Under contract from HHS and HUD, RTI International conducted a mixed-methods evaluation of the SASH program. Below are select links to reports from the evaluation:
