Navigating Housing Stability: A Personal Approach for the Medicare Advantage Population

Housing insecurity among the Medicare Advantage population is a concern that hits close to home for many of us. As Health Plan Executives, Vendor Management, and Government Policy stakeholders, we’re not just dealing with numbers and statistics – we’re dealing with real people who have real needs. That’s where Upside comes in.

In-Home Assessment and Remediation: Making Homes Safer

At Upside, we believe that everyone deserves to live in a safe and comfortable home. That’s why our first step is always an in-depth In-Home Assessment and Remediation process. We take the time to understand each member’s unique needs and circumstances, and then we work to make their homes safer and more accessible. It’s not just about ticking boxes – it’s about making a real difference in people’s lives.

Housing Navigation and Stabilization Support: Finding the Perfect Fit

Sometimes, making modifications to a home isn’t enough. When that happens, our Housing Navigation and Stabilization Support team steps in. We understand that finding a new home can be a daunting process, especially for seniors. That’s why we’re there every step of the way, helping our members find a place where they can feel safe, comfortable, and at home.

Traditional Senior Living Guidance: A Helping Hand

There comes a time when independent living may no longer be the best option for some members. When that time comes, our Care Guides are there to provide guidance and support. We understand that this can be a difficult transition, and we’re committed to making it as smooth and stress-free as possible.

The Impact: A Personal Touch Beyond the Numbers

When we talk about the impact of Upside’s work, it’s easy to get caught up in the numbers. After all, the cost savings for health plans are significant, and the reduction in preventable accidents is a clear indicator of success. But at Upside, we believe that our impact goes far beyond these metrics.

Our work is about people. It’s about the senior who can continue to live in the home they love because of the safety modifications we’ve implemented. It’s about the relief a family feels knowing their loved one has found a safe, comfortable place to live when independent living is no longer an option. It’s about the peace of mind that comes from knowing that someone is there to help navigate the often complex world of housing options for seniors.

Every member we assist has a story. Perhaps it’s a story of a life lived in a beloved home, filled with memories, where the desire to remain is strong. For others, it’s a story of recognizing that their current home no longer fits their needs and that a new chapter in a more supportive environment is necessary.

In each case, our impact is deeply personal. We’re not just improving housing conditions; we’re enhancing lives. We’re providing a sense of security and comfort to our members and their families. We’re ensuring that seniors can live their lives with dignity, in a place that feels like home, regardless of their circumstances.

And while we’re proud of the numbers – the cost savings, the reduction in accidents – we’re even prouder of these personal stories. Because at the end of the day, that’s what our work at Upside is all about: making a real, tangible difference in the lives of the people we serve.

Understanding Our Members

At Upside, we believe in taking a comprehensive approach to understanding our members. We don’t just look at their physical needs – we also consider their emotional well-being and personal preferences. Our comprehensive screening process helps us to understand each member’s unique situation and needs, allowing us to provide the best possible support.

At Upside, we’re not just addressing housing insecurity – we’re helping people to live better, safer, and more fulfilling lives. And that’s something we can all be proud of.
