In a previous study of 3 affordable senior housing communities in Colorado, the Center found that residents relied significantly on family caregivers. Interviews with housing staff at the Colorado properties reinforced the fact that family support was crucial to a resident’s general well-being and an essential factor in allowing the resident to maintain his or her independence.

Lutheran Services of America (LSA) and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans collaborated on Aging in Community, a new home and community-based initiative to encourage LSA members to expand their service delivery options and to learn from each other through “Open Source” activities and other shared learning opportunities. 

LeadingAge evaluated the impact of PREPARE, a bioterrorism training program, on participating communities using baseline, post, and 6-month post surveys. The Health Resources and Services Administration in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services funded the evaluation.
