Health Policy Brief
December 2011
S U M M A R Y: This policy brief presents
findings from a yearlong study that closely
followed a small but typical set of older
Californians with disabilities who depend on
fragile arrangements of paid public programs
and unpaid help to live safely and independently
at home. Many of these older adults have
physical and mental health needs that can rise or
fall with little warning; most are struggling with
increasing disability as they age. In spite of these
challenges, most display resilience and fortitude,
ging safely and independently at
home is a strongly held desire
among most Americans, and the U.S.
