Transportation Services for Older Adults & Non-Emergency Medical Transportation : Selected Analyses Hardback
Edited by Patricia Harris-Bowen
As the U.S. population ages, access to safe and reliable transportation alternatives is critical to helping older adults remain in their homes as long as possible.
HHS, DOT, VA, and other federal agencies may provide funds to state and local entities to help older adults access transportation.
This book examines the federal programs that provide funding for transportation services for older adults and the extent to which the programs that fund these services are coordinated; and how state and local transportation agencies and aging network organisations in selected states coordinate transportation for older adults and the challenges they face in coordinating or providing these services.
The book also addresses the federal programs that provide funding for NEMT services; how federal agencies are coordinating NEMT services; and how NEMT services are coordinated at the state and local levels and the challenges to coordination.
