Janet O'Keeffe, Sharon K. Long, Korbin Liu, Myra Kerr
Home and community-based care (HCBC) has long been viewed as a potentially more cost-effective strategy than nursing home care for providing long-term care services to elderly persons. This study provides information on how low-income, functionally impaired elderly persons who are nursing home eligible are managing their long-term care needs at home without the assistance of Medicaid waiver services. (Home Health Care Services Quarterly 2001; 20(4): 73-90).
