Do you have an Aging and Disability Resource Center in your community? 42 USCS 3002, The Public Health and Welfare, Chapter 35, lists the programs for older Americans. The Aging and Disability Resource Center is a part of the State’s system of long term care.
The long-term care system is aimed at providing continued care to individuals both in facilities and at home. Many people associate long-term care specifically with nursing and assisted living facilities, but long-term care is so much more.

As a result, research on the cost of implementing good quality care in long-term care facilities revealed that by having well-trained staff, they could save money by preventing risks to seniors health (Walter et al., 2007). For example, skin ulcers, use of physical restraints, incontinence and levels

When trying to find a way to reduce cost of long-term care it can be challenging, therefore, finding two alternative solutions is necessary for just in case the primary solution doesn’t work. One such potential solution would be a cooperative home between college students and the elderly patients. This could help resolve the cost problem because a spilt cost between college students and the patients would dramatically reduce costs and it would help the college students find a more affordable living space in comparison to sharing an apartment with other roommates. We would, of course, interview the candidates for the living spaces to ensure that both parties are not only compatible but also reliable. The situation would be like a roommate because both parties must pay their rent on time and be responsible for their costs. Obviously, the elderly patients would most

About three years ago Whispering Pines Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center adopted the new concept of “culture change”. This innovative change was doctorated under the concept that patients and residents work together to develop a system that is solely based on independent and individualized care for all residents. Residents make their own everyday decisions based on what they want in the level of care that they receive.
