11:05 pm
you the community of living fund 6 month report and the annual we were detailed into the previous agenda start with the 6 month report. >> okay. so i'm going to highlight a couple of areas for you in the six months report that covers the january to june 2016 time period there was an increase in referrals 26 percent since 2010 there was a decrease in the number of clients served under the emergency home delivered meals their fund by the aging of dollars, however, the number of clients this was served in the traditional model are consistent with the previous six months period and as you can see we received an additional $6 million to
11:06 pm
provide services i'll give you an update in the areas of in-home care and modification it is challenging to separate those expenses for this specific amount as you can see we can is that there are about 3 thousand more hours of in-home care provided during this period and an average of 10 more clients served for the board and care patches and the housing spending decreased by $34 million and there been about $40,000 spent in home care alone that include 4 stair lifts and two automatic door openers and one ceiling transfer system the current wait list is around 13 people which has gone down a lot and this is the earliest dates back to december i'll move
11:07 pm
to the annual fund there - the biggest news i want to highlight there was an existing contract that was transferred from the at that particular time of dos o to do so to $3 million that was the contract for skashtd site housing at the point of transfer one and 3 unit occupied with long term clients and those have been designated to expand the housing portfolio and to allow the target population to focus on the folks stepping down the employers are a center property be management organization which leases market-rate apartment
11:08 pm
with the home modification and the home retention unit and as you can see as the unit become available we'll open to the clients one of the big things during the past 6 months since the july we have focused primarily on implementation not only transferring the contract but the population is different the population we have tend to have more disability and the unit require more potentially accommodations we're doing an assessment and trying to integrate people that - transferring patients and clients from the dph model that has people are more health issues and people stepping down and one of the things we're
11:09 pm
creating a database we 3-d have one before we want to know as the unit become available to utilize through the process in terms of the referral to getting them into a house any questions. >> thank you very much keri any questions commissioner sims. >> one that's related to the demographic data collection i was - there's an acknowledgement in the 6 month report that the data is still partial it not fly deployed a quarterly timeline i'm trying to understand when you expected full deployment of the demographic data collection tools so we will know more about the populations that are served and how that breaks out. >> so the - they're
11:10 pm
collecting the data we found out last year there was a lot of things that needs to happen in terms of not just collecting the data but how people are doing it operational as when the tool we pull the data from this timeframe to versus pulling from a different timeframe and asked do managers to update the data and things we're accounting we expected the next 6 months the report will be much cleaner than it has been so another piece of it that as you can see dos integrated into one system so we would unify the terminology that was used and making sure that there are 4 things they're
11:11 pm
identifying that those 5 things and 5 in other database their routed does that answer your question. >> we fully acknowledge collecting the lgbtq data is sensitive and there's still a gap in our ability to collect the information i wonder if it's related to cultural competent then the tools themselves. >> right so hand in hand with the loving california part is the training we have if anticipated to launch this year in terms of the dos gaps are the ones that do it in take for c l s and getting that on the i o a side they're doing it they're building people's confidence around asking questions so -
11:12 pm
>> thank you. >> uh-huh. >> any questions commissioner president james. >> yes. do you cover any veterans in this report. >> under c l s. >> at the include the veterans eligibility for c l s is not preferable treatment a standard they meet under three hundred percent of the poverty line if they've over 18 you'll see that they receive services under c l s. >> so it's not sound. >> i don't know that piece of data is pulled out specifically i don't know there is an easy way something we can look at. >> not filled out in this report. >> that's not a clean way
11:13 pm
that's a good question. >> thank you and under the eligibility criteria. >> any other questions for karen thank you very much. >> next is melissa with the dignity fund oversight committee. >> good morning commissioner president james and commissioners, director mcfadden so i'm melissa magee the point person for dos working on the dignity fund i wanted to just give an overall what happened since the election what we're working on so sngz is passes on november 7th and the dignity fund set a baseline for seniors and adult disabilities and this year is adds $6 million on

seniors and adult disabilities with dementia and public housing the second it with dementia in the chinese community and third with the intellectual alzheimer's disease related disorders the objects are to one develop effective support systems for individuals living alone and train the caregivers to better support individuals with alzheimer's disease and disorders and 3 build effective care and support to persons in the chinese community with alzheimer's or other few moments of dementia the alzheimer's association they're specific they have a - i would say tlions share with a

11:34 pm
quality of life. >> i don't know if anyone tried that with a medical model and whatnot but shown to be having positive effects could be a base for other things. >> so i characterize this as a pilot. >> well it is fund through ac l if we have funding for other to do a pilot we're open to doing that so, yes. >> i think that several caregivers have been rolled out to the senior a positive recommendation but in other languages so we're going to try 2 with the chinese materials using same models to see it it works and part of what we need to look at if it needs to be tweaked good opportunity for us to look at this and given that senior population
11:35 pm

traditionally have seen as having memory loss and how to better serve those people and with the family and support system that exists like they're having schedules and dream jobs for any of us to have people that work with family members that have special needs so just having that kind of hearing some of the stories is really going to be really i'm hoping to see and learn a lot from this group should i jump to our question commissioner loo. >> yeah. i was asking the question whether the fringe benefit for the arc is so high

11:49 pm
people are born in car homes i'm concerned especially with the people that people that have severe disabilities and in terms of helping them and i think we should bargain a little bit more coming out of uc because this is - a hard project to work with and i know because i work with care operators and retarded children i'm concerned about the grooming of your derrick and alzheimer's you said dementia and how many
11:50 pm
clients might be eliminated because of that and my certain is that i think uc has a lot of wealthy in terms of servicpecias and maybe should be a little bit more medical consideration in terms of having those clients. >> so i agree there's a lot of need and certainly this one grant will not solve everything but i want to reassure you with the people identified as part of this project they're going to be both caregivers and individuals so when we identified someone that maybe is beyond the scope of this grant we will there are people that really want the
11:51 pm
whole person approach to helping people so in addition to the caregiver support group and the caregiver consultation and doing the training if there are areas that are outside of it not bans uc some people are providers that are training hospital and that's why we have the training if they're in the senior the public is part of a rad the public housing sites ze we have service coordinator and anyone that looks risky we'll approach them and make sure their taken care of that's what we do. >> any other questions or comments in the commission any questions or comments from the public hearing none, the >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed?
