Abstract: The diversity of the growing population of older adults has created a need for models of care that serve as viable and desirable alternatives to traditional nursing home care models. The panelists will talk about several programs (e.g., providing respite services, supports to caregivers) that allow older adults to be served in alternative settings including their own homes. The benefits and challenges for each model will be discussed in open forum
