This article focuses on care management with older people experiencing chronic disability. Care management, including a systematic assessment, arrangement and coordination of services, and monitoring the quality of the consumer experiences, has become a core element of the home and community-based delivery system. In addition, private care management has developed for individuals and families who have the necessary income to purchase their own services, but who still need assistance in navigating the complex system of health and long-term services. So as long-term care management turns 40 it seems timely to ask, what do we now know about care management and what do we need to know to make it a more effective component of the future delivery system?
