The aging network has the opportunity to grow by aligning itself with emerging integrated medical institutions. But such an alliance comes at a cost. Can the network retain its core values as part of such an enterprise? Aging has now been administratively merged with disability. The aging network faces several options. It can essentially continue business as usual. It can develop a product line for facilitating transitional care. It can look for opportunities to combine social and medical care, but such programs have been hard to sustain and justify. It could develop a horizontally integrated program to offer LTSS across a variety of venues and sell it to healthcare.
