Tuesday, November 5, 2013: 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
Promoting community-based LTC is increasingly important with the aging of the US population. This session covers the following topics related to this important issue: implications of Rhode Island's global consumer choice compact Medicaid waiver for rebalancing long-term care under the affordable care act; Factors affecting job satisfaction among home health aides; inappropriate medication prescribing for elderly brazilians living in nursing homes; transitions in caregiving: Identifying and meeting the needs of family caregivers in NH; and unmet needs for community dwelling older adults.
Session Objectives: 1. To draw lessons from RI's experience with the GW for the LTC rebalancing provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). 2. To examine the latent relationships between personal backgrounds, organizational factors, job related characteristics, and job satisfaction. 3. To provide an overview of the findings from the BRFSS, including the characteristics of NH Caregivers and areas of disparity between caregivers and the general population. 4. To exam the impact of unmet needs on the quality of life of these older adults and explores how these individuals address these gaps in care.
