Abstract

The Iowa Department on Aging (IDA), in accordance with Senate File 2418, collaborated with stakeholders to design a pilot initiative to provide long-term care options counseling utilizing support planning protocols. This pilot initiative assists consumers, age 60 or older, who are not Medicaid-eligible, who indicate a preference to return to their community, and are deemed appropriate for discharge following a nursing facility or hospital stay. The initiative is called Iowa Return to Community (IRTC). Local stakeholders include area hospitals, long-term care facilities, Connections Area Agency on Aging (AAA), home and community based service providers, Iowa Legal Aid, pharmacies, and other local providers.
