This comment addresses two questions arising from Redfoot's article, which discusses the link between housing and long-term health care: Is providing a long-term care service benefit that frees up other resources for housing the key to an open and accessible long - term care system? And if the separation of financing mechanisms has the projected effect, will reliance on private resources, currrent programs, and modest tinkering with the housing finance component be sufficient?
