Current Topic


     04/18 - Balancing Eldercare

How much does Louisiana spend on nursing homes versus home and community-based care?
Nationally, there is a shift towards providing care for the elderly at home and through community-based services rather than at institutions. But analysts say that Louisiana has a bias towards nursing home enrollment both in policies and funding. A series of bills being proposed this legislative session would address what some consider an imbalance in how the state supports care for its aged population.

So, how much does Louisiana spend on nursing homes versus home and community-based care? Is the demand for institutional care rising or on the decline? And what options are available to provide the funding and the care that the state’s older residents desire? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Balancing Eldercare” Wednesday, April 25 at 7 pm on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, April 24.)

Our panelists are
· Jeanne Abadie, The Advocacy Center
· Mark Berger, Louisiana Nursing Home Association
· Hugh Eley, Former Deputy Sec. of Louisiana Dept. of Health
· Senator Jay Luneau, D-Alexandria

LPB CEO, Beth Courtney and Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana president, Robert Travis Scott, moderate the discussion.
