The goal of inclusive care for dementia patients and other elderly individuals is to enable them to remain living within their community for the longest time possible without being brought into assisted living homes. While there is more than one model for that integrated approach by various providers, the one established by PACE (Program of All Inclusive Care for the Elderly) is the standard.

The Federal government mandates (through the Department of Health and Human Services) what services must be provided in a general framework. Each state is then charged with legislating how those services will be delivered in that state.

Agreed ways of working can be defined as meeting all regulatory and legal requirements in a manner that utilizes best practices and integrates resources.

Each each of the links below will give you a more in-depth understanding of Federal mandates and the one including HOO347, is an example of how a state program might be constructed. This one is for the state of Massachusetts and is very current.
