SCAN Foundation Unveils New Mission and 5-Year Plan

SCAN Foundation CEO Bruce Chernof outlined his group’s new mission and new five-year plan this month.

The foundation’s new mission is “to advance a coordinated and easily navigated system of high-quality services for older adults that preserve dignity and independence.”

Its new vision is a society where older adults can access health and supportive services for their choosing to meet their needs.

Chernof, who also headed the congressionally mandated Commission on Long-Term Care, said the group’s new strategic framework “keeps us squarely in the sweet spot – transforming the financing and delivery of aging services” but also provides clarity about “what we think are the greatest leverage points for change” within the next five years.

The group plans to focus on the three goals of integrating care and financing for low-income older adults; supporting models of care valuing dignity, choice and independence; and creating options enabling working families to pay for future long-term care needs.

“The health care landscape has altered dramatically since the Foundation’s inception in 2008, and our role in this work requires a corresponding repositioning,” Chernof wrote.
