The fourth volume in the prestigious Advances in Long-Term Care Series continues to address the challenges of long-term care with innovation and practical insight. Highlighting the dynamic nature of long-term care, the authors share their practical insight and explore issues linked to the cost and process of delivering care to an increasing number of clients. Topics include transitions between acute and long-term care, geriatric day hospitals, subacute care, and more. Contributors from a range of gerontologic disciplines use new research as bases to develop care solutions under the mandates of managed care.
