Sometimes you just have to ask- and then you’ll get your answer. Our society faces a real dilemma as millions of seniors confront risks and unsafe conditions as they “age in place.” Most people don’t want to leave their homes. A new pilot study from the Center For Medicare & Medicaid Innovation confirms that, in fact, having seniors remain home may be the best answer to this challenge- if the right supports are in place. The study demonstrates that asking people what they need to continue on in their homes, and then providing them the support to do so, can help seniors stay where they are. With a visiting team of a nurse, occupational therapist and handyman, 75% of the study participants were better able to perform daily activities. With an improved home environment, less dependence on others and fewer expenses in institutions, this model could be a win-win for seniors and insurers alike.
