Minnix Offers Obama Path for Transforming Aging Services
Date:12/2/2008

WASHINGTON, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In an open letter to President-elect Barack Obama, American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA) President and CEO Larry Minnix today offered four ways that the Obama administration can make both short-term gains and develop long-term solutions to the way America cares for its most vulnerable people.

These four ideas include:

Expand the Nation's Work Force: Create Jobs in Aging Services;

Construct Affordable Housing and Nursing Homes;

Provide Universal Health Coverage by Including Long-Term Care in Health Reform;

Improve quality of care for seniors and reduce costs through the creation of seamless transitions between and among services and supports

These ideas are consistent with AAHSA's Five Big Ideas for transforming the future of aging services.

"We are in the midst of both difficult times and a remarkable transition. Now more than ever, it is essential that the voice of not-for-profit providers of aging services is heard," Minnix wrote. "Working together, we can build hope for the future of aging services."
