4 States Are Recognized for Improving Older Adults’ Lives

Nov 28, 2017 / Amanda Chase, Horsesmouth Editorial Assistant

The SCAN foundation, a national nonprofit dedicated to preserving the dignity and independence of older adults, has recognized four states for their “progress made in improving the lives of older adults, people with disabilities and family caregivers.” Vermont, Wisconsin, Minnesota and New York were chosen for the Pacesetter Prize based on their performance in four aspects of the AARP’s 2017 Long-Term Services and Supports State Scorecard.

The SCAN Foundation president and CEO Dr. Bruce Chernof says, “There are too many places, there are too many states, that are not moving quickly enough to build a more integrated and community-oriented set of services, so we thought it was important to take a moment and recognize those states that are providing incredible leadership in achieving the kinds of outcomes that we should all want for ourselves, our families, our loved ones and the communities that we live in.”
