10:38 pm
specifically concerns about social security and what will happen in the future of social security we talked about medicare we talked about housing and how we might building that housing is part of health care an interval part and talked about being a nutrition and the food security and things like that to it was an interesting especially with the people when it was an interesting conversation he in particular is very concerned of the issues with the aging and department of aging & adult services and sent me materials that he is work on how to engage people gave me the american public in raising concerns about working with you know kind of the needs of older adults and sfugz his concern not
10:39 pm
enough attention 0 those issues we feel the concern it was interesting to here him and take on that issue how we might have better confusion with older adults an interesting visit and i've done this in the past with ann was not able to go and not always that hopeful on the other hand, there was a lot more talk about kind of funding streams and funding integration things that we're starting to work on in california a lot more conversations about those medicaid and mentioning with the national levels it was hopeful a lot more talk about in the past about elderly justice and the protection of the database so we know really, get a better
10:40 pm
understanding of the issues of elderly abuse in the country that was hopeful i will be running for a seat on the board of the national association of aging and the election will happen in july there are two seats from california i was asked by some southern california and the california association to apply to run because san francisco such an important player ♪ california we'll these how that goes >> when's the election. >> july. >> next thing i want to talk about supervisor wiener has put forth on ordinance to draft the language for lgbt data collection and the lgbt senior task force is involved in promoting the concept of data
10:41 pm
collection around lgbt demographics we can better serve the lgbt population in san francisco there will be battery on the language the supervisor thought all the departments that collects certain demographic information we'll collect that if our prospective since we've been down the road and thought about what that means milking how easy to get the information and the training needs and those kinds of things easier for daasw and on the departments to figure out the cost and the time commitment will be especially, when people are in the field working with clients there's certainly some training issues especially probation officer people that be inspector duffy rather than checking out the
10:42 pm
demographic information we as a city wants to make sure when that demographic information is collected it gets collected sensitivity so the staff understands what it is they're asking and the inspection and there will be adequate affiliation work to be done it is exciting and moving forward and certainly something that the lgbt senior task force has undertaken. >> one of the things i forgot to say about being in washington the president obama finally signed the oldest americans act and that was really a big celebration something that used to be rather performa but not in the paved if you years ago a lot of work on the hill trying to get legislators to really get on
10:43 pm
board it passed unanimously and went to the president but it was very hard i think that for those of you know the older americans act is the backbone of the speaks for itself the national funding and priorities for older adults that is important for us it gets passed and it did that's great the department has been working with the dignity fund coalition and the mayor's office around the dignity fund i'm sure there will be someone that will talk from the coalition prospective about that but interest is a real time crunch in terms of the language and i think that is the end of may that needs to be in so the department has a certain prospective on the language
10:44 pm
should be and the coalition side and the supervisors are weighing in and the mayor's office and the city of attorney's office there's a lot of there's a lot of moving parts to the legislation but hopefully getting closer to finalizing that and then want to say this afternoon at 1 o'clock is the adults budget hearing so it will be hsa and daasw and office of early care and education and presenting daasw budget it starts at 1 o'clock and the final thing i want to talk about the fair labors standard acts sanctions we talked about that you know the f l s a went into effect a couple months ago i asked staff they're working and
10:45 pm
getting information to people that have questions and progressing the information but this week the town hall went into effect people that violate the fair labor standards act by misstating their overtime the vision sanctions will go both effect we are waiting to see what that looks like we're haven't clear information how to handle those we'll know more but right now the staff a nervous we don't know how to handle that so more to come if that. >> i think that that concluded my report. >> any questions or comments. >> commissioiner ow. >> congratulations you are a commitment for what is it the july - >> oh, for the board of the national association of aging.
10:46 pm
>> how can we as a commissioner and you a nonprofit organizations to fund you and they're working with you for yaers and years incorporated how what walking can we lobby with the association. >> thank you, commissioner for that vote of support i think basically up to the board a national board so i don't think there is a role i wanted to let you know that is something i'll doing and so i'll just report back to you on how that goes. >> the the nonprofit can write a letter. >> in this case it is not i think that is not necessary but thank you. >> i tried. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> the next item on the agenda is the advisory report by smith.

11:03 pm
percent and the 3 percent is a typo it is 8 percent of this time period and half of the referrals were missing the sexual organize data we are working trying to get this we're looking at a different way to don't there will be cleaner next week and the two performance measures we're reporting on the first one the percent of the clients with one or fewer planned acute hospital readmissions within a six months o month period with the ouch the money management cases and the goal of 80 percent for the 6 month period we exceeded at 93 percent of clients having one or fewer admissions this is the first time we've reporting the measure we'll monitor to see from the threshold needs to be
11:04 pm
raised or evaluate the second performance the care problems resolved on average one year after enrollment and exclude the clients the goal a 80 percent it was 55 percent of the service items were resolved or transferred after one year and substantive have less than one hundred of the care plans with the ongoing care needs this is the first time we're looking at the indicator it shows we need more training with staff what happens the care managers will update the care plan the year after during the reassessment wear pulling this data we're asking staff to kind of do it on an ongoing basis to so 6 months
11:05 pm
will accurately show what was going on that's sort of the main two highlighted with this period any questions you can ask now. >> any questions or comments commissioner loo. >> on page 2 oh, page 4 the paragraph submit the changes effecting the co s the second paragraph for 2015-2016 the money didn't come before december do you have to spend the money can the money be carried over if you have to spend it what kind of programs. >> the money can be carried over so right now the past couple of months building the infrastructure to manage the money effective and building contracts so one of the main
11:06 pm
things if so down the scatter site housing was updated in february of 2016 so, now there are 12 unit for those and not a lot but we're doing specifically targeting this and really looking at the people that have the highest needs for the skaufrt housing for example, and the other thing ear doing a care coordinator position that is looking for people having a purchase only need that don't need case management that one person is kind of managing all the purposes and doing it expedited segment so we can spend the money like the whole modifications so we're looking at ways to spend that money efficiently we know in this year this was an increase of threshold funding we have in the next 4 years to kind of manage this money so we expect a down curve we needed
11:07 pm
time to ramp up and time to ramp down after the contract. >> commissioner loo. >> another one section one one i'm looking at the average monthly climb to donna and look at the december 15th the number is its that number but down there it is a donna $908. >> are you following me. >> no. i'm not sure where you're at. >> all kind of dollars near the become. >> uh-huh.

11:09 pm
large number of clients and in prior months that reduced the average program we have a smaller denominator and that's why it is increased from nine hundred to $900 a month. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> any commissioiner ow. >> yes. this program initially giving the patient in the laguna and transfer them to a community home setting now that this program run for quite a few of the years there's not many laguna honda evaluations into a community home setting my question is where is our patients come from you know you taking care of so many patients
11:10 pm
where you pick up them. >> so the few look at 31 percent of the referrals are from laguna honda it is a different population the folks the population demographics are different and extend to other places to look at kind of the highest across the board and focus on one specific facility. >> you just answered is it thirty percent of your patients come from laguna honda. >> 31. >> 31 then where's the other 60 percent. >> good morning. i'm laura from the director of the community living fund we transitioned 4 to 10 patients out of the laguna honda to serve those clients we get a large
11:11 pm
number of referrals so aps and adult protective services and others organizations that have the current clients that need a higher level of case management that's where we get that number. >> does that answer your question. >> commissioiner ow. >> i wanted to remind everyone that so the criteria for community living fund is that someone be at risk in an institution or at risk of institutiontion so the living fund accepts people from the community as well from a setting like laguna honda or not skilled nursing facility. >> thank you i may be one of those patients (laughter) in the future. >> any other questions or comments? thank you very much the next on the agenda item a an action item requesting the authorization for the grant
