Long-term care is one of the fastest-growing segments in the healthcare industry. Societal changes, including the aging of the boomers and an evolution in attitudes toward aging and retirement, will continue to propel long-term care issues to the forefront.

With an emphasis on the trends and developments that are transforming long-term care, this book introduces readers to the options available in care settings, programs, and services. The second half of the book relates aspects of management - including leadership, human resources, marketing, regulatory and legal issues, and financing - to long-term care.

The authors emphasize the need for flexibility in the long-term care system, recognizing that consumers may need different combinations of services and settings as they age. The importance of technology in care provision is also highlighted.

Topics include:

  • Residential, home, and community-based care services
  • Cultural diversity and the delivery of services
  • Chronic illness, with a focus on Alzheimer's and related dementias
  • Hospice, palliative, and end-of-life care
  • Consumer education and technology as self-help tools
  • The design of long-term care facilities
  • Management issues - human resources, marketing, legal, and ethical issues
  • Long-term care financing sources
  • Regulation of long-term care providers
