To what extent is the nursing home population dictated by system players such as hospitals, home health care, and Medicare and Medicaid (among others)? To what extent will Medicaid spending trends determine the future of the nursing home industry?

Allen (2016) discusses nursing home care versus home health care and poses several thought-provoking questions: “Which is better and less expensive for the state? Is health care provided to older and chronically ill persons in their own homes better and less costly? Or is it more frugal and at least as desirable to institutionalize them in a long-term facility and pay for their care where economies of scale prevail” (p. 311)? Consider and respond to these questions. Support your responses with evidence from the textbook and/or other sources, as well as your personal experiences.

Describe what you consider to be “the ideal” long-term care facility from the administrative perspective (Frank, 2002). How might population dynamics affect it, e.g., population aging, aging Baby Boomers, the reality that because women live longer, there are more of them (and older women have higher dependency rates than men), increasingly diverse populations, etc.?

Describe the philosophy, role, and population served through assisted living communities per Yee-Melichar, Flores, and Cabigao (2014). Delineate assisted living, nursing home, and home health care.

How do the three environments mesh together in the post-acute continuum of care in your opinion?
