Going Home Plus
MDS 3.0 Section Q
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the 1999 Olmstead decision state that residents have a right to receive care in the least restrictive (most integrated) setting. Providing residents with choices through information about care options and supports that are available to meet their preferences and needs helps to ensure those residents have the opportunity to access the least restrictive setting appropriate for them.
