NJ Aims to Keep Seniors at Home

A New Jersey healthcare program known as Global Options, which helps seniors age in place rather than nursing homes, is earmarked for a big boost in funding under Gov. Chris Christie’s proposed 2013 budget. New Jersey is moving forward with its push to help seniors remain in their homes and communities and avoid nursing homes for as long as possible. While the majority of the state’s Medicaid long-term care spending still pays for nursing home care, the shift to home and community-based services is evidenced by the growth of Global Options, a major state program that provides nursing-home eligible Medicaid recipients with home-based support services like visiting nurses and housekeeping aides. http://bit.ly/HiIzO4
