I found an interesting article online recently which discusses the fact that thousands of psychiatric patients are going to be moved out of nursing homes and into community based facilities during the next few years in an effort to reshape Illinois’ failing long-term care system.

The agreement details a schedule for when state officials will offer roughly 4,500 mentally ill nursing home residents the choice to move out of their current facility into smaller facilities which experts claim are more appropriate and less expensive.
