Tribal Nursing Home Practices (New Publication):

“This report describes the approaches to culturally sensitive care of four tribal long-term care facilities.  It outlines tips for providing person-centered care, honoring traditions, coordinating cultural activities, supporting elders’ spiritual wellbeing, training staff to provide culturally sensitive care, and leveraging community support and partnerships to provide care rooted in culture and tradition.” (DHHS/CMS, March 2018, pg. 2)

Tribal Nursing Home Directory (New Publication):

“The Tribal Nursing Home Directory lists the contact information for each tribally operated nursing home facility. The information includes the tribal affiliation, facility name, address, facility contacts, and certification. The directory also lists the contact for each facility’s local ombudsman and Quality Innovation Network–Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO). This document is updated on an annual basis.” (DHHS/CMS, March 2018, pg. 3)

Announcing the 2017 Profile of Older Americans:

A Profile of Older Americans: 2017, an annual summary of the latest statistics on the older population compiled primarily from U.S. Census data, is now available as a web-based publication in a user friendly format along with data tables and charts in Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.

The Profile has proven to be a very useful statistical summary and serves as a resource for all professionals with an interest in the changing demographics of the population age 65 and over, including 15 topical areas (such as population, income and poverty, living arrangements, education, health, and caregiving).
