Improving Outcomes for Older Adults in Alameda County

As we age, the supportive services that we receive at home and in the community can have a profound influence on our health. Understanding the links between community-based supports and health for older adults, and moving beyond traditional silos in planning and delivery, can achieve the triple aim of improving the experience of care, improving the health of populations, and reducing per capita costs of health care.  

On December 2nd the Senior Services Coalition convened our third annual conference, Making the Difference: Improving Outcomes for Older Adults in Alameda County. Over 130 community-based service providers, health care professionals, health and social services agency leaders, policy makers and consumers came together for this silo-bridging event. Together we explored recent developments in policy, financing and collaborative innovation that are relevant to improving health and life outcomes for older adults.
