LSA Senior Connect is an innovative service model to connect older adults to services and supports that improve their health and quality of life. Led by Genacross Lutheran Services and piloted since 2019, the program also enables older adults to maintain their health and independence while also addressing gaps in care among affordable housing residents. In 2020, LSA Senior Connect was cited by The Healthcare Leadership Council in its recent publication, “Care, Context & Community: Creative Ways to Address Social Determinants of Health,” as one of a handful of successful examples of empowering lower-income older adults to stay in their homes. The program has also been highlighted by The Commonwealth Fund.
