As older adults and their families opt out of nursing homes, a range of home and community-based services (HCBS) have risen up to provide care. HCBS span platforms and approaches, from home health care to assisted living to community-based hospice to adult day services. These models are, for most, preferable to nursing homes and allow older adults to "age in place"-live longer in their own homes and communities.

Home- and Community-Based Services for Older Adults examines the existing and emerging models of HCBS, including the history, theory, research, policy, and practices across care settings. Emphasizing the multidisciplinary and interprofessional practice approaches used to deliver care, this book is an essential learning tool for students interested in medicine, nursing, social work, allied health professions, case management, health care administration, and gerontology. As the population of older adults grows, the authors ask, how can we best meet the needs of older adults and their families in the most effective, cost-conscious way while honoring their care choices?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Presenting a welcomed and needed comprehensive examination of home and community services-which has received insufficient attention until now-Anderson, Dabelko-Schoeny, and Fields offer a historical and contemporary understanding of this critical life space. Students, practitioners, policy makers, and other stakeholders in the health professions will learn fundamentals and gain new passion for assuring that health and care come home. -- Laura N. Gitlin, Drexel University
Americans overwhelmingly desire to live at home in their communities as they grow older, especially those with chronic health conditions and daily living challenges who often fear ending up in institutions away from loved ones and friends. Home- and Community-Based Services for Older Adults is an essential primer for those working across the care continuum and seek to deliver person-centered support so that all of us can live well in the place we call "home." -- Gretchen Alkema, The SCAN Foundation
The authors have masterfully integrated information from a broad range of sources and distilled it into a well-researched, well-organized, well-written, and well, swell book that provides sound historical context, contemporary policy and practice implications, and a peek at the future. -- Mercedes Bern-Klug, University of Iowa
This book could fill a gap in student education regarding her or his future professional opportunities and experiences. It is useful to have such depth provided on HCBS, as these are often embedded across content or covered in one to several chapters among other texts. The book is well written and accessible to readers at multiple levels of education. -- Marla Berg-Weger and Cara Wallace, St. Louis University
This volume offers a timely treatment of an evolving, complex social phenomenon. * Choice *
