The relationship between Older Americans Act in-home services and low-care residents in nursing homes.
This study examining the relationship between the proportion of older adults in a State who receive in-home services funded by the Older Americans Act and the proportion of residents in nursing homes finds that for every additional 1 percent of the 65+ population that receives personal care services, there is a 0.8% decrease in the proportion of low-care residents in nursing homes.
