Executive Summary

This study will examine the quality of life survey findings of 154 recipients of services provided through the Kentucky Money Follows the Person program. In order to accomplish this, the term „quality of life‟ must first be defined and examined from the viewpoint of its role in the provision of health related services. Also, as a point of reference, a brief background concerning the Money Follows the Person program and its development will be provided. Lastly, after „quality of life‟ is defined for the purposes of this study, 183 surveys (154 baseline and 29 follow up) will be statistically analyzed in order to determine what variables correlate to either positive or negative QOL trends among program participants. Using this information, this study will then determine whether program implementation among the 154 individuals examined affected QOL.
