HHS/AoA Atlantic Philanthropies grants

Public-Private Collaborative Announces Program to Empower Older People to Take More Control of Their Health

Deadline August 31, 2006

The United States Department of Health and Human Services ( www.hhs.gov/ ) has announced a $15 million collaboration with Atlantic Philanthropies (http://atlanticphilanthropies.org/) to improve the health and quality of life for older Americans at the community level.

Led by the Administration on Aging ( http://www.aoa.gov ), the partnership is designed to empower older people to take more control of their own health through life style and behavioral changes that have proven effective in reducing the risk of disease and disability among the elderly.

  • .
  • HHS will support efforts in up to twelve states to mobilize public/private partnerships that support the delivery of evidence-based programs for seniors at the community level through nonprofit aging services provider organizations such as senior centers, nutrition programs, senior housing projects, and faith-based organizations. AoA plans to fund up to twelve cooperative agreements totaling up to $300,000 per project, per annum, for a three-year period, subject to the availability of funds. A 25 percent match will be required.

    State Aging Agencies and State Health Departments may apply for these grants. Only one application may be submitted by a state.

  • .
  • In addition, through a grant of up to $5 million to the Center for Healthy Aging, Atlantic Philanthropies will provide additional financial support and technical assistance in up to five states that show significant potential in developing systems to reach large numbers of older adults. A separate application and selection process will be used for these awards.

    For more information and the program announcement (“Empowering Older People to Take More Control of Their Health Through Evidence-Based Prevention Programs A Public/Private Partnership Grants Program”), see the AoA Web site.

    May Is Older Americans Month

    from Librarians’ Internet Index: New This Week, New and newly-discovered Web sites for librarians and everyone else, updated every Thursday morning. See more resources on our site, http://lii.org/

    http://www.aoa.gov/press/oam/oam.asp

    Background and suggestions for celebrating Older Americans Month (originally Senior Citizens Month when it was established in 1963), “a time to acknowledge the contributions of past and current older persons to our country, in particular those who defended our country.” Features history, a list of past themes, and materials and downloads (from 2003 to the present). From the Administration on Aging, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services….

    The theme for Older Americans Month 2007 is “Older Americans: Making Choices for a Healthier Future.”

    I think Bethel will celebrate by not building the assisted living home again, by not passing reduced cab fares for elders, by rooting for a 20% sales tax increase for a municipal swimming pool, and mostly by not taking time out to visit the “inmates” as they call themselves “back there”, at the senior center.

    I guess the AOA logo is appropriate, then, head ’em off into the sunset.

    Administration on Aging Pandemic Preparation

    The Federal agency, Administration on Aging, has a preparedness guide. One is for general emergency assistance and one is specific to a pandemic influenza.

    Unfortunately, each Emergency Assistance Guide chapter is it’s own pdf file to download, Start here,
    http://www.aoa.gov/press/preparedness/preparedness.asp

    For a copy of the Letter from the Assistant Secretary about Pandemic Flu preparation (pdf file)  click here.

     For a copy of the AoA Pandemic Flu Plan (pdf file)  click here.

    A copy of the “Long-Term Care and Other Residential Facilities Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Checklist” is available at http://www.pandemicflu.gov/plan/LongTermCareChecklist.html.

    Preparedness suggestions include:

    • Have a structure for planning and decision-making, with a multidisciplinary group created to specifically pandemic influenza preparedness planning.
    • Develop a written pandemic influenza plan that identifies the person or persons authorized to implement the plan and the organizational structure to be used.
    • Develop a facility communication plan that includes key points of contact such as local and state health department officials, and a person responsible for communicating with staff, residents and families.
    • Have a plan to provide education and training to ensure that all personnel, residents and family members of residents understand basic prevention and control measures for pandemic influenza.
    • Have an infection control plan in place for managing residents and visitors with pandemic influenza.
    • Have a plan to get and use vaccines and antiviral drugs.
    • Address issues related to sudden increased needs, such as prioritizing services, staffing and supply shortages, and alternative care for residents who need acute care when hospital beds are unavailable.

    I haven’t had a chance to review these yet. I have yet to see any evidence of local planning for the elderly. We just last week went through breakup and spring flooding. It happens every year. Yet once again an elder was moved to higher ground, but without taking along the required meds which were left in the house or clinic.

    Also, no one recalls a fire drill in the past several (five +?) years at the senior center. See the checklist for When you visit the senior center – https://theelderlies.wordpress.com/2005/08/06/when-you-visit-the-senior-center/
