Many nursing home (NH) residents receive limited services. In 1996, approximately 17% of the 1.6 million NH residents received assistance with two or less activities of daily living.This study explored light-care NH residents in Missouri including: (a) the functional status of light-care and heavier-care NH residents at admission and at one year post-admission, (b) the total number of light-care residents, and (c) the characteristics of light-care residents. Data were generated from statewide samples of NH residents in Missouri taken from electronically entered MDS resident assessment data that was entered by nursing home staff. Each resident's level of care was estimated using Resource Utilization Groups, Version III (RUG III). Light care residents were defined as residents who had the lowest two RUG III classifications - PA1 or PA2. We found that (a) about 14% on Missouri NH residents required light-care; (b) that light-care residents had difficulties with mobility and dressing, initiating activity, and establishing goals; and (c) that 11% of all new admissions were light-care on admission and 11% of heavier-care residents became light-care after on year. These results reveal there are nursing home residents that could potentially be cared for in settings providing lower-levels of care.
