Long Road Home is a self-advocacy project to celebrate and promote awareness of Olmstead and to start conversations about Olmstead compliance. Long Road Home started in 2004 in Georgia and now has been done in eight states. We will look at the importance of self-advocacy in the Olmstead case and how self-advocates made a difference. We will take a brief look at the nursing transition and discuss the 24-hour care myth which is a key point when discussing future system change.
