Lilly Hummel

A recently released report summarizes state-based policy initiatives that provide solutions to support the needs of seniors. The report is based on meetings from the Reforming States Group, which is a bipartisan group of state health policy leaders, and provides examples of action-oriented programs to improve long-term services and supports, to address how the impending workforce shortage affects palliative care, for innovation technology, and for dementia care. The cited initiatives provide some creative policy suggestions to ensure that communities meet the needs of older adults.
