Goals of Community-Based Development Develop services that allow people to live independently and be active participants in their communities as long as possible Align funding sources with the market Integrate services Integrate funding sources and maximize resources Provide supports for seniors, their families and other caregivers across the LTC system
Earlier Funding Rounds 7 previous rounds 690 Applications 165 projects funded Built/renovated 640+ units of affordable senior housing Over 44,000 persons served More than 12,000 additional volunteers
January 2004 Round: 111 Applications 62 projects selected - Applications on website
July 2004 Round: 29 Applications 9 projects selected - Applications will be posted on website
Lessons Learned Significant resources from “other payers” Active Partners in the same area Integrate services and payers Need for larger, more integrated, regional, collaborative projects
Lessons Learned Existing funders need to collaborate Some CSSD grantees and others are already actively collaborating/integrating Build on current relationships and discussions Increase scope
Overall CS/SD Objective Rebalance the proportion of State LTC dollars spent in NFs vs. HCBS by providing solutions that directly prevent or delay NF placement or by moving current NF residents into community settings.
RFP Objectives 1.Integrate formal health care with quasi-formal support to provide a seamless consumer experience, coordinated chronic disease management, and reduce costs associated with fragmented or duplicated services. 2. Support care recipients, their families or other designees to choose, direct, purchase and manage care.
RFP Objectives 3. Combine multiple eldercare services for better consumer access to a menu of integrated LTC services, higher quality outcomes and cost savings in administrative expenses. 4. Serve a larger number of persons or geographic area or integrate more services.
RFP Objectives 5. Replicate or expand successful demonstrations and evidence-based practices in gerontology, long -term care, disease management, or technology. 6. Use non- public funding or resources (private pay, sliding fee scales, individual and corporate donations, volunteer resources, cost sharing, etc.) to reduce dependence on federal, state and county funding.
RFP Objectives 7. Use existing resources more effectively to improve consumer outcomes and increase services 8. Serve the needs of all consumers, including those with special cultural, language or other needs.

Five Targeted Areas Integrate Formal & Quasi-Formal LTC Services Chronic Disease Management Technology Consumer Directed Services Nursing Home Industry Transition
Integrate Formal & Quasi-Formal LTC Services Link formal (care or medical management departments of health plans, health providers, hospitals, nursing facilities) and quasi-formal (faith-based programs, caregiver support programs, volunteer programs, etc.) LTC services to promote health/functional capacity through chronic care management or expanded consumer access, reduce service costs, decrease hospital/nursing home use, etc.
Integrate Formal & Quasi-Formal LTC Services Example: A community agency partners with a health care provider to target individuals at high risk of nursing home placement, or with multiple chronic illnesses to maintain them in a home or community setting through coordination of informal support services, formal home- and community- based services and medical care.
Integrate Formal & Quasi-Formal LTC Services Example: A health plan establishes a formal relationship with quasi-formal or other community agencies to integrate informal services into care plans at local clinical or other service sites.
Integrate Formal & Quasi-Formal LTC Services Example: Counties, an area agency on aging and service providers develop a resource center to centralize: information about aging services, caregiver services, assessment of financial and programs needs, provision of effective LTC decision making assistance for consumers, families and professionals, convenient access to aging services.
Integrate Formal & Quasi-Formal LTC Services Example: A nursing home joins with quasi-formal providers, rehabilitation therapists and other clinicians, or respite care providers to provide coaching, consumer-directed planning assistance, care consultation, specialized information and respite care for caregivers of persons with high risk conditions.
Chronic Disease Management Identify individuals who are currently in or at high-risk of hospitalization, placement in LTC, or are frail due to one or more chronic diseases, e.g., congestive heart failure, Alzheimer’s Disease, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; effectively manage the care of those individuals, integrating medical, functional and psychosocial support services; and promote improved consumer self-care and quality of life.
Chronic Disease Management Examples: Health provider delivers services using evidence- based health care practices, paired with family members, caregiver and other informal support services that jointly promote the management of dementia or other chronic conditions. Health care and quasi-formal providers identify seniors with one or more chronic disease and jointly provide integrated chronic disease management.
Chronic Disease Management Example: Health provider delivers services using evidence-based health care practices, paired with family members, caregiver and other informal support services that jointly promote the management of dementia or other chronic conditions.
Chronic Disease Management Example: Health care and quasi-formal providers identify seniors with one or more chronic disease and jointly provide integrated chronic disease management.
Chronic Disease Management Example: A nursing home partners with a health plan, a county-based purchasing alliance, a county or counties using Prepaid Medical Assistance or other third-party payer, hospital, home care agency, consumers and clinics to create a seamless system for identifying and supporting those with chronic health or frailty issues
Technology Use a variety of technologies to assess needs, manage health and chronic disease, deliver services and support, monitor and evaluate outcomes, improve quality, purchase and manage services by consumers, supervise and train staff, manage data, simplify administrative and service delivery processes, reduce costs and provide more consumer autonomy and choice.
Technology Example: A regional network of providers and other partners create on-line capacity to research or purchase services that are delivered in a timely manner and increase operational efficiencies or reduce unnecessary travel.
Technology Example: Use technology to provide education, clinical evaluation and monitoring, and mental health and caregiver counseling for those with a chronic condition or a new diagnosis to support healthy outcomes in the community.
Consumer Directed Services Expand consumer directed options for persons 65 + and their caregivers to provide more choice and control Develop fiscal support and counseling entities to help consumers plan, manage and pay for their care, track participants and manage this service delivery option.
Consumer Directed Services Example: A nursing home, health plan, employer, county, parish nurse program, caregiver provider, and AAA collaborate to develop a consumer-directed service model that includes providing essential information, training, budgeting and service planning and evaluation assistance and to market and provide those services to older adults and family caregivers
Consumer Directed Services Example: non-profit social service agency serving multiple counties creates a regional flexible case manager/counselor service that is grounded in “person-centered” planning principles and available across funding streams and provides funds for individual consumer to budget and spend for personal care, respite, etc.
Nursing Home Industry Transition Regional, sustainable LTC business/service models using existing nursing home (NH) physical and workforce resources to: integrate and coordinate LTC services in the community promote home- and community-based services (HCBS)
Nursing Home Industry Transition Examples: NHs partner with HCBS / other health care providers achieve efficiencies in service delivery or better consumer outcomes. NHs in multi-county service areas identify LTC needs and deploy nursing home staff, physical plant, technology and other resources to better address long- term health care needs in the market area. NH partner with quasi-formal organization for caregiver support, community integration, socialization, etc.
Characteristics of Funded Systems Change CS/SD Projects: Strong Partnerships Significant tangible resources from partners, particularly Health Care organizations and Counties Over promising resources weakened proposals Partners in the wrong places weakened proposals
Characteristics of Weaker Systems Change CS/SD Proposals: Over promising resources Partners in the wrong places Not really systems change
