A shift from nursing homes to managed care at home
from The New York Times
Faced with soaring healthcare costs and shrinking Medicare and Medicaid financing, nursing home operators are closing some facilities and embracing an emerging model of care that allows many elderly patients to remain in their homes and still receive the medical and social services available in institutions. The rapid expansion of this new type of care comes at a time when healthcare experts argue that for many aged patients, the nursing home model is no longer financially viable or medically justified.
