In this web seminar, the Institute on Aging (IOA) presenter Dustin Harper will describe its work in California to develop alternatives to long-term-care placement for older adults and individuals with disabilities. He will talk about IOA’s experience adapting a model of care originally developed with an Area Agency on Aging to multiple Medicaid Managed Care Organizations. He will share IOA’s perspective regarding the business case for alternatives to long-term-care placement and how they can complement traditional LTSS advocacy efforts. Harper also may briefly describe new results from a caregiving initiative targeting the low-to-middle income population.  

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Identify at least three internal capacity-building initiatives that CBOs may want to consider in developing solutions for managed care organizations;
  • Identify at least three lessons learned by IOA in adapting a model to the managed care environment;
  • Describe IOA’s business case for developing alternatives to long term care placement; and,
  • List promising results from a new IOA caregiver initiative targeting the low-to-middle income population with activities of daily living needs.
