Community Approach Necessary For Affordable Long-Term Care, Says NCB Capital Impact
Date:4/30/2009

WASHINGTON, April 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In light of protests in Washington urging inclusion of the Community Choice Act in health care reform efforts, NCB Capital Impact points to the success of existing community-based, affordable long-term supports models as examples of what is possible.

The number of those who need more intense health care support is at an all-time high. Among the 54 million people with disabilities in the U.S., there is a growing population seeking affordable and accessible living alternatives that allow them to stay connected to their communities. Additionally, the projected growth of the elderly population, which currently includes more than 37 million people age 65 or older in the U.S., highlights the need for health care reform that supports consumer preference and choice.

NCB Capital Impact and its partners nationwide have established community-based long-term supports models that can provide affordable access to services for people in their homes and communities. The Village-to-Village approach establishes membership-driven organizations run by small staffs and volunteers who coordinate affordable services including transportation, in-home medical care, home repairs and other day-to-day needs enabling individuals to receive care at home. Another example, the Green House Project(R), transforms institutional long-term care by altering facility size, interior design, staffing patterns and methods of delivering skilled professional services in a way that creates communities for individuals and staff that emphasize social networks.

"As the population of retirees and people living with disabilities grows, integrating solutions for housing and innovative long-term supports is necessary for providing those in need with safe, affordable options for care," said Terry Simonette, president and CEO of NCB Capital Impact. "The Senate Finance Committee has already pointed to the Green House Project(R) as a viable pilot model in health care reform efforts, but we need widespread political and public support for these community-based approaches in order to provide tangible solutions to long-term health care delivery."
