  • The Adequacy of Income Allowances for Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services.  Richard W. Johnson, Stephan Lindner.    The Urban Institute.  May 10, 2017.   We found that 48 percent of older households with incomes below four times the federal poverty level spend more than their state’s Medicaid HCBS income allowances, and 29 percent spend at least 50 percent more than the allowances, potentially limiting program access and forcing some older adults into nursing homes.
  • Physical Activity, Brain Volume, and Dementia Risk: The Framingham Study.  Zaldy S. Tan; Nicole L. Spartano; Alexa S. Beiser; Charles DeCarli; Sanford H. Auerbach; Ramachandran S. Vasan; Sudha Seshadri.  Journal of Gerontology A – Biological &  Medical Sciences, June 2017, Volume 72, Issue 6, Pages 789-795.  Published online: July 15, 2016.  Low physical activity is associated with a higher risk for dementia in older individuals, suggesting that a reduced risk of dementia and higher brain volumes may be additional health benefits of maintaining physical activity into old age.
