What is the future of CT nursing homes? Industry is under pressure

Editor’s Note: This is the second report in a four-part series about Connecticut’s aging population and the challenges in finding ways to care for people.

This week: Nursing homes face a reckoning as they deal with fewer residents, a change in pay and plans to ‘right-size’ the industry.

Last week: The country’s aging population is expected to more than double. Connecticut’s network of supports is struggling.

Upcoming: As more people choose home and community options over institutional care, will access to services be equal for all?

Upcoming: More people are aging in place. But the state’s home care industry operates with little oversight.

For many Connecticut nursing homes, the next few years will be about survival.

Along with unprecedented staffing shortages and less-than-ideal occupancy rates, nursing home operators are also facing a state Department of Social Services that is intent on “right-sizing” the industry by directing money away from nursing homes and toward home care programs.
