What you will learn with this Book
The baby boomer juggernaut is here.
You may have already been affected by it, pulled in because of a spouse, parent, grandparent, uncle, or aunt needing nursing-home placement. If not, you may well be in the near future.
The sheer volume of this demographic will put a strain on the health-care system, including hospitals, doctors' offices, and long-term care (LTC) facilities like nursing homes. This book has addressed the LTC field. It explained the long-term care continuum, including:
- senior centers,
- adult day cares,
- home-health services,
- hospice services,
- assisted-living/memory-care centers, and
- nursing homes—both skilled-nursing facilities (SNFs) and nursing facilities (NFs).
