Ziegler Webinar | Impact of Medicare’s “GUIDE” Model on Life Plan Communities

On July 1, 2024 CMS will launch a new voluntary nationwide model – Guiding an Improved Dementia Experience (GUIDE). GUIDE is a model that aims to support people living with dementia outside of a skilled nursing facility. While the program was announced in July 2023, its impact and relevance to Life Plan Communities remains relatively unknown. We believe it is important for Life Plan Communities to understand GUIDE and how this program impacts residents and creates an opportunity for providers. In this webinar we heard directly from experts on the key attributes of the GUIDE program and its impact on Life Plan Communities. The session included best practices to implement the model in the life plan setting, to include appropriately leveraging existing staff and resources.
