Moving Beyond Institutional Nursing Home Care – Part 2:

Diverting Nursing Home Admissions & Transitioning to the Community from a Nursing Home

Remaining at home, instead of entering a nursing home, is the first choice for older adults and people with disabilities. Adequate home-based services are critical for avoiding a nursing home admission and for transitioning from a nursing home to the community. This program will focus on eligibility for and available home and community-based services (HCBS) under Medicaid in New York, and overcoming barriers to accessing HCBS. The panel will discuss programs and services essential for diverting people from nursing homes and transitioning back to the community, limitations on HCBS that lead to undue institutionalization, and recent policies, proposals, and workforce issues affecting HCBS in New York. The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened the need to expand and increase access to HCBS services in New York.
