Nursing Home-to-Community Transitions: Success through Collaborative Advocacy

When: Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. PT / 2:00 p.m. ET.

In the past decade, over 75,000 individuals have transitioned from a nursing home back to the community through the Money Follows the Person program. Individuals who return to the community report significant and lasting improvements to quality of life.

In this webcast, presenters will explore the barriers and legal issues that attorneys and Long-Term Care Ombudsmen (LTCO) confront when assisting clients with this transition. Presenters will explore the challenges raised by residents with diminished capacities, how person-centered planning rules can empower residents in the transition process, and strategies to keep or acquire affordable housing while in a nursing home, particularly for residents with prior evictions or bad credit histories. The presenters will also discuss effective Medicaid waiver strategies that support nursing home transitions.        

With an emphasis on effective attorney and LTCO collaboration, the webinar will highlight examples of successful advocacy to achieve positive results for older adults needing long-term services and supports.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.
