- Who We Are
- Grants & Grantees
Through our work to engage the public, the Foundation provides useful and relevant information about the realities of our nation's growing long-term care needs, and how to meet the needs that we will all face - not just in our families, but as part of an aging society. By engaging the public on this issue, people can begin to have conversations about their own aging experience and those experiences of their loved ones. These conversations will be the catalyst that will take the message of long-term care reform from our homes and into the public discourse. We envision a society in which all Americans have access to care that allows people to live with dignity and independence in the place that they choose.
National Public Radio (NPR)
National Public Radio's vast network of stations reaches the majority of the nation. Given the scope of its audience, the Foundation has provided support for the hiring of a dedicated NPR correspondent to cover aging and long-term care issues. Through this project we will continue to increase awareness about the importance of a sustainable network of services and care for older Americans.
Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) Summit in California
In 2011, the Foundation convened a summit of more than 200 stakeholders, advocates, policy makers, academics and consumers to discuss how to best transform California's system of care so that it will meet the growing demand for LTSS in the state. Based on the overwhelming success of this summit, a second event is planned for 2012. For more information on the 2012 LTSS Summit in California, click here.
