LeadingAge and UMass Boston establish LTSS Research Center

LeadingAge has teamed up with the Gerontology Institute at the University of Massachusetts Boston to establish the LeadingAge LTSS Center @UMass Boston.

The center combines the expertise of applied and academic researchers with the unique perspectives of providers and consumers of long-term services and supports (LTSS). The center will conduct research aimed at transforming the way LTSS are financed, delivered, and experienced by older adults and their families.

LeadingAge President/CEO Katie Smith Sloan says LeadingAge and UMass have committed to improving the quality, affordability and accessibility of long-term services and supports through data and evidence of what really works.

The LeadingAge LTSS Center will be co-directed by Dr. Robyn Stone, senior vice president of research at LeadingAge, and Professor Marc Cohen, leader of LTSS research at the Gerontology Institute, which is part of the McCormack Graduate School at UMass Boston. The joint center will have offices in Washington, D.C., and Boston.

Researchers will work together to study a variety of issues affecting the LTSS field, including workforce challenges, housing plus services strategies, nursing home quality and LTSS financing.
