Description

America urgently needs innovative housing and care solutions for our growing population of older persons. For those who do not require or cannot afford costly, full-time nursing care, yet find it increasingly difficult to live alone, board and care residential facilities may be the most practical and attractive alternative. What are board and care homes, and how do they operate? How are they managed and regulated? How can older persons, caregivers, and family members decide which are the best facilities?"Between Home and Nursing Home" suggests what to look for when choosing a facility, how to monitor the care offered, and the kinds of supervision and services that should be available. For residents and caregivers alike, the authors offer valuable suggestions and illustrate activities that contribute to total mental and physical well-being. This book includes valuable appendices that feature important facts about retirement facilities and tips on how to evaluate a residential care facility. Families and professionals will find this book to be a valuable guide to one of the fastest-growing housing and health care options available to the aged.
