Financing & Ownership

Who pays for care has a profound impact on who gets what kind of care, and who owns the facility influences how work and care are organized. By exploring the different patterns and consequences of financing and ownership, this theme intends to identify those that meet the goals of dignity and respect for both care providers and residents. The most efficient ways of using public money for care are also being sought.

What innovative financing and ownership models are promising in terms of ensuring equitable access to quality long-term residential care while reducing the offloading of both material and other costs onto workers, employers, families or individuals?
