Policy makers and practitioners are increasingly acknowledging the need to shift health care expenditures toward cost-effective strategies that reduce disability and dependency in older persons. That need is driven by current research on disability and population aging, disability interventions, and the inadequacy of the existing service delivery system for chronic care needs. How disability and dependency should be reduced most effectively and efficiently is a critical yet unanswered policy question.
