This working group of interested individuals is conducting a comprehensive overview of the nursing home industry, with a focus on the barriers to alternatives that individuals encounter. The group is reviewing the many existing paths from independence to nursing home care inherent in the structure, financing, and assumptions of the industry. They will highlight the inconsistency of these barriers with the principles and legal requirements of disability integration under Olmstead and the ADA and to develop strategies to address them. This project is headed up by IHDD’s staff member Sue Jamieson who is one of the lead attorneys for the Olmstead v. L.C. case.
