Revisiting the Olmstead Ruling: Keeping More Older Adults Out of Nursing Homes

By | Events, Home & Community Based Services, REPORTS | No Comments

A September 2010 NSCLC report,  10-Plus Years After the Olmstead Ruling: Progress, Problems, and Opportunities, calls on Congress and the states to give older adults and people with disabilities to expand the use of home and community based services and to deemphasize the institutionalization of our elders as the health care reform law suggests and encourages.
