Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate community based factors that may predict long-term transition success for Money Follows the Person (MFP) program participants in Connecticut who are older adults living with serious mental illness. Using Human Ecology Theory to frame its inquiry, this study utilized data from Connecticut’s MFP program. The sample consisted of 363 older adults with serious mental illness age 50 or older who were living in the community six months after their initial transition from a long-term care facility. Twelve months after their initial transition to the community 91% of the individuals (n = 331) were still living in the community. Results indicated that satisfaction with one’s living situation was associated with transition success. Implications for community-based systems of care are discussed.
