Results of Survey of San Juan County Residents over 70 years old are in.
Background: In August and September of 2019, thanks in part to donations from county residents, the Foundation commissioned a survey of county residents to determine the extent and magnitude of unmet needs for community based long-term care services in San Juan County.
A total of 393 surveys were determined to be complete. A two-page summary of the KEY FINDINGS can be found by clicking this link: IIHF Survey Summary (PDF)
Next Steps Included submitting an application for federal HRSA grant funding to formalize governance and organizational structure to proceed with an analysis of long-term care options in San Juan County.
If awarded this grant, funding would be made available in March or April of 2020. For a review of the complete HRSA Funding Opportunity; HRSA 20–026, click this link: FORHP HRSA-20–026 P10 (PDF)
