    • Benefits and outcomes of the service coordinator programThe information contained in the following charts was extracted from theAASCOnline web-based documentation and data tracking system. The data wasentered into the system by more than 1,000 service coordinators.This system was developed by AASC in collaboration with the PangeaFoundation* and was designed to meet the documentation, assessment,monitoring and reporting needs of service coordinators working in senior andadult disabled housing communities.Currently, there are 1,697 properties using the AASCOnline system *www.pangeafoundation.org American Association of Service Coordinators www.servicecoordinator.org 614-848-5958 7
    • Measuring the Impact of Service Coordinators on the Lives of Low-Income ElderlyThis chart represents the number of residents living in the properties using the AASCOnline system as well asthe number of residents being assisted by the service coordinator.On average, 72% of the residents living in properties using the AASCOnline system have utilized the servicesand assistance of the service coordinator. American Association of Service Coordinators www.servicecoordinator.org 614-848-5958 8
    • Aging in Place Increasing access to home and community-based services for seniors living independently in affordable housing keeps them living in their own homes longer and has an immediate and measurable impact on keeping them out of higher cost-of-care facilities. In 2011, the national annual average of nursing home care equaled $78,110 compared to the annual average cost of assisted living ($41,724). Clearly, providing access to home and community-based services for seniors living independently are significantly less - $19 to $21/hour – yielding significant savings of public funds.* *Source: MetLife Mature Market Institute; (October 2011) "The 2011 MetLife Market Survey of Nursing Home, Assisted Living, Adult Day Services and Home Care Costs" (https://www.metlife.com/assets/cao/mmi/publicat ions/studies/2011/mmi-market-survey-nursing- home-assisted-living-adult-day-services-costs.pdf)American Association of Service Coordinators www.servicecoordinator.org 614-848-5958 9
    • Measuring the Impact of Service Coordinators on the Lives of Low-Income Elderly This chart represents the ages of residents living in the properties using the AASCOnline system with 3 or more Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) needs and were considered FRAIL. These residents represent 3% (4959 out of a total of 164,163) of all residents living in properties using the AASCOnline system in 2011 American Association of Service Coordinators www.servicecoordinator.org 614-848-5958 10
    • Measuring the Impact of Service Coordinators on the Lives of Low-Income ElderlyThis chart represents the number of residents that vacated their apartments in 2011 of theproperties using the AASCOnline system.Of the residents that vacated their apartments: 1% moved to a nursing home, <1% moved toan assisted living facility and 3% passed away while residing in the property. 89% of theresidents residing in properties using the AASCOnline system continued to liveindependently through access to services and assistance from the service coordinator. American Association of Service Coordinators www.servicecoordinator.org 614-848-5958 11
    • More than 2 million Services DeliveredIn 2011, more than 2.4 million services were provided to the 164,000+ residents being tracked in AASCOnline. Of theresidents that used the service coordinator, the average number of services per resident increased to 21. In 2010, the averagenumber of services provided was 19. In 2009, an average of 15 services were provided to each resident being served atAASCOnline user properties, and in 2008, the number of services provided per resident was14.This suggests that, as residents age, having a service coordinator on-site is valuable to both the residents and the property. Thehigher incidents of frailty results in a greater need for services. Providing access to services, benefits and supports allows elderlyresidents to remain living independently at the property longer, rather than moving to a higher level of care.
