1:10 pm
highlight this year we have implemented a snap ed called tie chief for arthritis and it is using the snapshot that linda talked about identifiable 1-b is the our medication management program and so again i think we've recorded on this program before this is the program where we have a pharmacist involved and the q organization director works with the office of aging and the case management programs to work with the case managers they're looking at medications identifying what people's medications are and able to work with the parliament i thought to assist if there are other problems that might occur some of the things are really showing

1:15 pm
they've agreed to do that i can see it is help to integrate programs and people are doing things outside their task because their starting to know each other's programs and starting to understand what it means to integrate an agency other thing we continue to be involved in people in the department and community some thought you are involved if various committees of the long term care council and a lot of things going on there there's the age and sedating san francisco group and the housing committee and hiv and aging to name a few a lot of engagement and activity going on and those help to integrated and the long term care coordinating council itself which brings in a variety of different departments people in the community labor etc. which is not integration effort

1:22 pm
seniors income regardless of how she is housed that in terms of below the poverty line but living with family don't have to pay additional housing costs is that included ♪ that calculation >> i believe the poverty rate is based on household so if the senior is included in that household. >> a great many seniors are probably living alone. >> yes. san francisco actually has a higher rate of single household than any other couldn't in the state. >> we've been doing work and getting results from the dementia task force is this something the state wants to monitor in terms of california as a whole san francisco is well
1:23 pm
ahead of the curve but any information if the state is interested therefore provides fund for . >> that's a great question ann. >> so the state formed a state task force after we had put our- i know other parts the country are doing similar things he know the alternative organization and number of folks cross the state will an clamoring for the state to do this for research as well as programming but other than that i'm not hearing of traction in that area at the federal level especially for the research in part this seems to be some transaction but nothing to date it looks like it will be a substantial fund coming this
1:24 pm
way. >> thank you any other questions or comments from the commission? commissioner loo >> yeah. on page 21 the program and i realize the number of certified volunteers has been decreased is that because of the funding and also a lot of the residential care has closed down. >> i could try to answer that i'll ask mike to come up he understands that better arrest remember the volunteer number is up over the previous years. >> down by 20 percent open page 21. >> so typically what happens is and so this is down from 20 so the performance the program
1:25 pm
performance in the federal fiscal year of 2013-2014 showed 16 records in that year so we use that level of performance and use that as our baseline measure for this update for the future year going forward and see whether or not we're going to go over this number at this point we includes to keep it at the same number because it is still in rfp not completed negotiations no one is doing it july 1st, we'll have someone in place the program is subject to kind of budgets swings so it is hard to judge how much money and how much services they'll be able to provide we're going to use that as a base to build from and hopefully increase that actual
