A Conversation with Richard Browdie


A Conversation with Richard Browdie, CEO of the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging
ideastream producer Kay Colby sat down with Richard Browdie to discuss the 2014 Raising Expectations Report by AARP and two other organizations that scored states across 26 indicators that point to things states have in place to support family caregiving and other long-term care options focused on caring for people in their homes and their communities. The discussion begins with a question about one of the indicators that looked at the amount of Medicaid money a state spends on institutional care such as nursing homes versus home and community-based services.

State Scorecard Report
The 2014 "Raising Expectations" report by the AARP; the Commonwealth Fund; and the Scan Foundation scores states across 26 measures and five main categories regarding long-term services and supports for older adults, people with physical disabilities, and family caregivers.
