Recent bulletin aims to keep older adults at home in rural areas

A recently released bulletin provides state agencies and other interested stakeholders with information about available federal resources that may help patients in rural areas remain in their homes.

The bulletin was a joint effort by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and three other U.S. Department  of  Health and Human Services (HHS) agencies –the Administration for Community Living( ACL), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), according to a CMS press release.

Available federal resources are meant to “reduce physical environmental barriers in the home, increase safety, minimize the risk of falls and support a person’s ability and desire to remain in their own home,” according to a CMS press release.
