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)
