This chapter describes efforts to help nursing home residents return to the community. Consumer demands for services that enable them to live in the most integrated setting, the U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding the rights of individuals with disabilities to live in the community, and the rising cost of institutional care to state Medicaid budgets have led to increased efforts to help nursing home residents move to community settings. State Medicaid, aging, other agencies and independent living centers, and other community-based organizations are increasingly developing programs to promote community transitions.
