Measuring outcomes of long-term care for older people

Measuring outcomes of long-term care for older people
Measuring outcomes of long-term care for older people
There comes a time in the lives of a minority of older people when the extent of their disabilities makes it impossible for them to continue living in their own homes. When this happens, long-term institutional care may be the only option. Given that most residents in long-term care are over 75 years old and that the numbers in this age group will increase into the next century, we can expect an increase in the number of people requiring long-term care.

Abstract

There comes a time in the lives of a minority of older people when the extent of their disabilities makes it impossible for them to continue living in their own homes. When this happens, long-term institutional care may be the only option. Given that most residents in long-term care are over 75 years old and that the numbers in this age group will increase into the next century, we can expect an increase in the number of people requiring long-term care.
