Abstract: For vulnerable and frail older adults, management of daily financial obligations can become an overwhelming burden spiraling into at-risk situations. Social service agencies have developed community-based Daily Money Management programs to assist these adults in protecting their financial security. Through this study the authors present the first economic estimates of the costs of Daily Money Management programs which, along with case management programs, save $60,000 per individual when compared with the cost of nursing home placement, making them highly cost effective. Most importantly, individuals are able to remain in their homes. The authors address the current gap between cost-effective community-based practice and public policy support. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
