F.S. 430.202
430.202 Community care for the elderly; legislative intent.The purpose of ss. 430.201-430.207 is to assist functionally impaired elderly persons in living dignified and reasonably independent lives in their own homes or in the homes of relatives or caregivers through the development, expansion, reorganization, and coordination of various community-based services. The Legislature intends that a continuum of care be established so that functionally impaired elderly persons age 60 and older may be assured the least restrictive environment suitable to their needs. The development of innovative approaches to program management, staff training, and service delivery which have an impact on cost-avoidance, cost-effectiveness, and program efficiency is encouraged.
