Self-Direction during COVID-19: A New Hampshire Case Study

July 23, 2020

In collaboration with Granite State Independent Living, Applied Self-Direction created a case study to better understand how individuals who self-direct are faring during the COVID-19 pandemic. When we compared self-directing individuals who are over 80 years old and nursing home eligible to individuals in long-term care facilities, we found that 0% of the COVID-19 deaths in New Hampshire are individuals self-directing compared to 82% of COVID-19 deaths in long-term care facilities.
