In this web seminar, the Institute on Aging (IOA) presenter Dustin Harper will describe its work in California to develop alternatives to long-term-care placement for older adults and individuals with disabilities. He will talk about IOA’s experience adapting a model of care originally developed with an Area Agency on Aging to multiple Medicaid Managed Care Organizations. He will share IOA’s perspective regarding the business case for alternatives to long-term-care placement and how they can complement traditional LTSS advocacy efforts. Harper also may briefly describe new results from a caregiving initiative targeting the low-to-middle income population.
