Join this webinar to learn about strategies for funding improvement and innovation in complex care on a smaller budget.

  • Caregiving: What Communities Need to Know
    February 2, 2018 2:00 pm
    Cosponsored with Arizona Age-Friendly Network and Grantmakers In Aging. With few supports and services available to family caregivers, their time, resources, health, and well-being are increasingly strained. No matter where people are in the journey of family caregiving—just beginning to anticipate a need, helping to coordinate a care transition, or taking care of a family member full time—having a good framework to help guide both caregivers and communities makes the process easier and will significantly improve health outcomes for care recipients and caregivers alike. Join this webinar for a conversation with Dana Marie Kennedy, State Director of AARP Arizona, to learn how communities can adapt to the needs of family caregivers and provide the resources needed to support people aging in place.

  • Age-Friendly Communities and Rural America: The Transportation Challenge
    January 18, 2018 2:00 pm
    Cosponsored with Grantmakers In Aging. There are approximately 10 million people aged 65 and older living in rural America. Transportation options are often limited in small towns and other rural areas, and improved transit access is imperative to aging well in these communities. This webinar taught us from two foundations and a local Association of Governments that have embraced the fundamental issue of rural aging transportation, how they have begun to build and fund programs, and discussed the importance of partnerships in rural America. Speakers included Andrew Levack of St. David’s Foundation, Laura Mason of May & Stanley Smith Charitable Trust, and Amy St. Peter of Maricopa Association of Governments.

  • Developing/Revitalizing Aging and Disability Stakeholder Coalitions
    January 30, 2012 12:00 am
    State governments are making substantial changes to delivery systems that provide services for low-income older adults and adults with disabilities. These changes have potential to better integrate medical care and long-term supportive services for these populations, making care options easier and more efficient for consumers and their family members to access and navigate. Much of the impetus for state program changes is due to an infusion of federal dollars, including funds available from the CMS Innovation Center through the Affordable Care Act. However, to ensure that services are designed and implemented in the most consumer-friendly manner possible, stakeholders from the aging and disability communities must be engaged in program design and oversight processes and need to present their collective voice to be heard by state officials and implementing organizations.
