Keeping our most vulnerable residents educated, housed and healthy during COVID-19

Our Executive Director Beth Southorn recently met with LifeSTEPS intensive case management staff and members of L.A. County Health Services in Los Angeles. The team reflected on the past two years of the COVID-19 pandemic and expressed gratitude at being able to keep our most vulnerable residents educated, housed and healthy during the crisis. “At a time when the world was on lockdown, our teams remained on the front line. Despite the fear and uncertainly, our residents knew that we were still there for them and would not leave their sides,” said Beth.

LifeSTEPS Applauds Introduction of “Healthier Home – Age in Place Nursing Program” Legislation

LifeSTEPS thanks Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian for including “Healthier Home – Age in Place Nursing Program” in his Aging and Long-Term Care Bill Package to advance California’s historic Master Plan for Aging.

The legislation, spearheaded by LifeSTEPS and USA Properties, is modeled after a pilot program designed to provide and link health care and social services in senior affordable housing communities. In addition to improving health outcomes, enabling older adults to age in place and saving lives, our partnership with CA’s healthcare systems saved an estimated $1.1 million annually in medical costs.
