The AI/AN elder population is growing rapidly and the Al/AN population as a whole is aging. The prevalence of chronic disease in this population continues to increase, contributing to a frail elder population with increasing long-term care (LTC) needs.

LTC is best understood as an array of social and health care services that support an individual who has needs for assistance in activities of daily living over a prolonged period. LTC supports elders and their families with medical, personal, and social services delivered in a variety of settings to support quality of life, maximum function, and dignity.

While families continue to be the backbone of LTC for Al/AN elders, there is well documented need to support this care with formal services. The way these services and systems of care are developed and implemented can have a profound impact on the cultural and spiritual health of the community.

Home and community-based services have the potential for meeting the needs of the vast majority of elders requiring LTC services, supporting the key roles of the family in the care of the elder and the elder in the care of the family and community.

    Grant requested to study Universal Long Term Care Insurance. A universal life insurance policy with an accelleration clause in the event of long term care needs. Funds advanced would be deducted from the final life insurance benefit. This would be a payroll deduction plan which starts at first job and has a “cobra” like transfer from job to job. The benefit to the individual insured would be to provide long term care insurancein the event it is needed and life insurance to the heirs. MOst long term care insurance if not “used” is lost. The economic benefit would be to essentially remove the medicaid burden of the estates. The long term care expenses would be privatized. Government, the indidividual and private insurance companies benefit. Grant is needed to develop an insurance plan; to study the political, economic and social aspects.

    Mr Kauffman this particular grant wouldn’t be the type you would need. Unfortunately, I don’t where else you could look.

    You might give Dr Finke a call. Alternatively, if you have a large senior center nearby, you might check with them for resources or through your state’s council on aging.

    Seems to me there should be something to help folks think through new ideas.

    Anyone with suggestions?
