In an ongoing effort to effectively demonstrate to Congress and other federal policymakers the benefits of service coordination, AASC has developed a one-page fact sheet that outlines the potential monthly savings of federal dollars — funds from taxes paid by most Americans — of keeping a low-income elderly person in their own apartment.

The fact sheet compares the national monthly average cost of a nursing home placement versus the national monthly average cost of maintaining a frail elderly person in their own subsidized apartment with food and nutrition benefits (i.e., Food Stamps/SNAP), community-based supports and services that aid in keeping them self-sufficient.

Use the fact sheet when communicating to your Congressional members, state and local policymakers about the cost savings service coordinators generate in taxpayer dollars.
