NASHP Releases Toolkit on Older Adult Aging in Place Strategies

The National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) recently released a toolkit highlighting state initiatives to help older adults in rural communities age in place by increasing services that help people remain in their homes, expanding and professionalizing the caregiver workforce, improving transportation access and services, and making delivery system reforms within Medicaid programs. The report details a number of strategies, including using emergency personnel in new ways, providing mobile adult day care and health services, and using technology to address social determinants of health. The full toolkit is available here.
