The Canadian Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation (CC-ABHI), located at Baycrest Health Sciences (Baycrest) in Toronto, Canada, is offering funding to accelerate innovative solutions that will allow older adults to age safely in the setting of their choice while maintaining their cognitive, emotional, and physical well-being.  Katie Sloan, LeadingAge’s president and CEO, serves on the Board of CC-ABHI.


The Center for Applied Research is partnering as a subcontractor to the Lewin Group to provide technical assistance to states and other organizations seeking to improve the recruitment and retention of individuals who provide support services for people with disabilities. 

The National Direct Service Workforce Resource Center was created to respond to the large and growing shortage of direct service workers. The resource center offers:

  • An on-line searchable database.
  • Access to information from a team of direct service workforce policy professionals.
  • Technical assistance for selected State Medicaid Agencies awarded through an annual application process.   

The project was funded by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The 2007 National Home Health Aide Survey is the first national probability survey of home health aides. 


LeadingAge Center for Applied Research, in partnership with Social and Scientific Systems, Inc. (SSS), will be conducting analyses using this survey to provide technical assistance and policy analysis to the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE). 


The goals of the analyses are to describe workforce characteristics and to evaluate the interrelationships among workforce characteristics, job quality, and other worker and facility characteristics and quality of care. 


The goal of analyses underpinning the "Workforce Characteristics" report is to understand the supply of workers by demand, geographic location, policy variation, agency characteristics, and recruitment strategies.


The team will prepare reports and manuscripts with results from these analyses.


This project is funded by ASPE and the Center is a subcontractor to SSS.
