Long-term care for the elderly in the United States is a spectrum of medical, social and personal services. The effort to assure equal access to such services in the 1960s led to the Medicare and Medicaid programmes, but their costs greatly exceeded original projections. Current economic constraints and the marked increase in the population over 65 have led to much rethinking about long-term care services for the elderly. This book presents a range of the most recent descriptive data on long-term care of the elderly, covering both the need for and provision of it. It also provides background information on the issues and legislation. It will serve as a basic reference for gerontologists, health care planners, hospital administrators, demographers and social scientists.show more
