Abstract

Closing the gap between knowledge and practice in the United States long-term care financing and delivery system is an important public policy goal. The author offers ideas about the significance of personal financial responsibility as a vital component of any appropriate strategy for moving the U.S. away from present long-term care practice that relies extensively on institutional placement, toward a financing and delivery paradigm that more heavily utilizes home and community-based long-term care services.
