Sodexo has awarded a $50,000 grant to the International Association of Homes and Services for the Ageing (IAHSA) and LeadingAge to conduct a study on aging services providers that are expanding into home and community-based services (HCBS).
The LeadingAge Center for Applied Research translates research findings into real-world policies and practices that improve the lives of older Americans and their caregivers. During 2014, the Center conducted groundbreaking work in its 2 signature research areas: housing plus services and workforce. These and other exciting research initiatives are described in our 2014 Annual Report.

Housing providers like Peter Sanborn Place in Reading, MA, are enabling well-being by providing services that help older residents remain autonomous until the end of life. In his new book, noted author and surgeon Atul Gawande sees this as a sign that we’ve entered a new era of care for aging Americans. In her November blog, Robyn Stone shares evidence that Gawande is absolutely right.
Many of Robyn Stone's friends nodded politely a few weeks back when she told them that she had been elected to the Institute of Medicine (IOM). In her latest blog, Stone offers her own unsolicited responses to 2 questions she believes her friends—and others—should be asking about the IOM.
