LeadingAge LTSS Center @UMass Boston

LeadingAge LTSS Center @UMass Boston

The LeadingAge LTSS Center @UMass Boston conducts research designed to help our nation address the challenges and seize the opportunities associated with a growing older population.

LeadingAge and the University of Massachusetts Boston established the joint center in 2017. The center, with offices in Washington, DC and Boston, is the first of its kind to blend the resources of a major research university with the expertise and experience of applied researchers working with providers in the field of long-term services and supports (LTSS).

    LeadingAge spent a lot of time getting “up close and personal” during August 2018, as our team members in Washington, DC, and our members around the country, held face-to-face meetings with policy makers. As Labor Day approached, we also stepped up our efforts to develop tools and resources to help members prepare for an array of political and regulatory milestones coming this fall.

  3. What Have We Done for You Lately? – June 2018

    “Let’s talk about it” has been LeadingAge’s primary message to consumers, policy makers, and members during June 2018. We’ve asked millennials to “Carry the Conversation” by becoming the voice of long-term services and supports (LTSS). We’ve been talking with policy makers about a variety of issues that matter to older Americans. And we’ve provided resources that member organizations can use to frame their internal conversations about important decisions.
