    MiCASA (Medicaid Community Attendant Services Act). Amending Medicaid to ensure
    home care.

    Arrindell DM.

    Home Care Aide Association of America, Washington, DC, USA.

    In recent months Congressional interest in community-based care for Americans
    with disabilities has gained momentum. The Medicaid Community Attendant Services
    Act (MiCASA) would ensure that people with disabilities or a need for long-term
    care are able to have a say in what kind of services they receive--and that they
    can receive them in the home or community.

    Home care and the disability community. Two factions with one goal.

    Kafka BA.

    National Association for ADAPT, Austin, TX, USA.

    People with disabilities need long-term and community-based services. To date,
    that care has been delivered through a medical model of service delivery. The
    time is ripe for the home care and the disabled community to look at delivering
    care through a social model instead.

    New developments and issues in home care policies.

    Brodsky J, Habib J.

    JDC-Brookdale Institute, Jerusalem, Israel.

    This paper provides an overview of the major trends in the organization of
    services for the disabled elderly, and the implications for the elderly of the
    emphasis in recent years on remaining at home in the community. The paper
    presents an example of changing policies from the experience of Israel, which
    recently enacted a Community Long-term Care Insurance Law to increase levels of
    home care entitlements to the severely disabled.

    Community-based home care programs are not for everyone--yet.

    DuBois MM.

    Home Health Agency of Hackensack Medical Center, NJ.

    New Jersey's Community Care Program for the Elderly and Disabled was developed
    to help prevent institutionalization of the participants by providing an array
    of community-based health services. Legal and ethical concerns in service
    delivery are presented by way of case studies. The intent is to provoke
    thoughtful analysis of the rights and responsibilities of both clients and

    A profile of Medicaid home and community-based care waivers, 1985: findings of a
    national survey.

    Laudicina SS, Burwell B.

    La Jolla Management Corporation.

    This article presents the findings of a national survey of Medicaid home and
    community-based care waiver programs established under Section 2176 of the
    Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981. The article documents the ways states
    have used their waiver authority, the methods states use to target their
    programs to people who are at risk of institutionalization, the programs'
    service utilization and expenditure levels, and the quality assurance systems
    that have been established as of 30 September 1985. Based on these
    state-reported descriptions of Medicaid home and community-based waiver
    programs, the article discusses preliminary findings on the cost-effectiveness
    of the waivers and looks at some potential attributes of a cost-effective

    The experience of clients and informal caregivers with community health care

    Greaves G, Lewis P.

    School of Nursing, Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario.

    Persistent changes in long term care policy reform in Ontario prompted one home
    care program to undertake a multifaceted study to evaluate the effects of those
    changes. This article describes the qualitative component of the study examining
    perceptions of clients (persons with disabilities; adults over 80 and under 80
    years of age) and of informal caregivers concerning their satisfaction with
    services and the impact of service delivery on their quality of life. Responses
    and descriptions of relevant perceptions and experiences varied with category of
    participant. Study findings revealed that satisfaction with services and
    concomitant quality of life depended upon the quality of communication with
    service providers.

    Community options for community care in Australia.

    Halton J.

    Department of Health, Housing and Community Services, Australia.

    Australia's trial community options projects help meet those individual needs of
    the aged, the disabled, and others trying to avoid institutionalization that are
    beyond the capacity of home and community agencies. The next step is to spread
    the good news.

    A disability perspective on home care.

    Thomas S.

    ADAPT (American Disabled for Attendant Programs Today), Austin, TX.

    As the disabled community continues to find its voice, advocates are trying to
    change the way our society defines disabled persons and the way our health care
    system defines the services they need. Home- and community-based care can offer
    the disabled the independence and community access they want--home care agencies
    should be aware of the special needs of this growing population.

    Home care and a bill of rights: past experience, potential implications.

    Irwin RG.

    National Association for Home Care, Washington, DC, USA.

    Patient rights legislation is not entirely new. In 1987 Congress passed laws
    regarding patient rights. At that point, the home care industry experienced some
    valuable lessons that Congress, government, consumers, and agencies should all
    consider with future bill of rights.

    Community-based care: back to the future!

    Stricklin ML.

    Visiting Nurse Association of Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

    Home- and community-based care are deeply rooted in the United States and
    worldwide. Public and private organizations have provided formal in-home and
    community health services for more than a century. Today they are an integral
    part of the care continuum, ranging from highly technical and professional
    services to simple forms of non-professional and voluntary support in homes.
    Because the roles and functions of community workers have expanded and
    diversified, organizations must successfully recruit, train and support workers
    with widely differing skills. In health care's new economic era, health has
    re-emerged as a community rather than individual concern. Non-traditional models
    of service delivery will be the cornerstone of community-based health care.
    Providers and policy-makers must find new ways to refocus from treating illness
    to achieving and maintaining health.
