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.
