Our research highlights disparities and differences in the prevalence of long-term services and supports (LTSS) needs and related resources among U.S. adults aged 55 and living in the community. We examine private finances, insurance coverage, and social supports, as well as long-term health, LTSS and financial outcomes over the next decade. Disparities and differences occurred along racial and ethnic, gender, and geographic lines. This report analyzes data from the University of Michigan Health and Retirement Study (HRS).

Health Equity Perspectives from Individuals Experiencing LTSS Needs, and their Caregivers, from Historically Marginalized Communities

ATI Advisory’s qualitative research highlights the experiences of individuals with long-term services and supports (LTSS) needs and their caregivers in requesting, receiving, and providing LTSS. Using a community-based participatory framework in partnership with local organizations, ATI conducted six focus groups interviewing individuals and caregivers from key populations across race, ethnicity, language ability, gender identity, sexual orientation, and disability status about their experiences with LTSS. Discussions generated themes around barriers to accessing LTSS, insights on family and professional caregiving across cultures, financial constraints, the value of social community for individuals and their caregivers, and the impacts of equitable and inequitable LTSS. This work was supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
