Integrated Care for Older Adults in Rural Communities
Assesses four types of organizational models for delivering integrated physical, behavioral health services, and long term services and supports to rural older adults. Each model has different strengths and drawbacks, weighing for and against implementation in rural areas. Reports that introducing an integrated care model in a rural community requires an investment in building relationships with local providers and adapting to local culture and services.
