Pub Chat No. 1: Rob Hilton ~ Affordable Housing Key to Long-Term Care

In this premier edition of Pub Chat, Rob Hilton, the President & CEO of the A M McGregor Group in East Cleveland, Ohio, shares with us his knowledge, experience and insights on the importance of affordable housing when addressing public policy efforts regarding aging services and long-term care for the elderly.  Rob has been actively and passionately involved in the national dialogue on Affordable Housing Plus Services (AHPS) for over a decade.

Rob was gracious enough to stop by the Pub last week to discuss how during his tenure at McGregor he became interested in the potential for AHPS and the challenges we face as a society in combining affordable housing with aging services and long-term care policy solutions.  He also provided some great insights on where he sees opportunities – and risks – for other provider organizations interested in exploring AHPS.  Finally, he offered his thoughts on where the future of AHPS is headed from a provider and public policy perspective.

    Scot,
    It seems to me the 202 program is at much greater danger than tax credit funding sources. One of the crucial problems for AHPS providers to solve is how to reach the 202 population since tax credit projects likely won’t do so. This is something I’m really interested to see how it shakes out. But I completely agree with Mr. Hilton that the complexity of these deals will only increase going forward!

  2. Ryan: Welcome to the Pub! Without wishing to diminish the value of your insightful comment, I want to thank you for being the very first to leave a comment. I hope this will be the first of many. There is a lot we can all learn from one another, as you have just demonstrated.
    Thx,
    Sparky
