"This book grapples with some of the most significant issues in long-term care today--that is, becoming more explicit about what should be meant by terms like 'quality of care' and 'quality of Life.'"
--Rosalie A. Kane, DSW, University of Minnesota

"A major resource for all concerned about improving the future for the long-term handicapped."
--Robert Morris, DSW


This volume will strengthen our understanding of the relationship between providing care to the elderly and improving their quality of life. The contributors examine areas where systems can be improved from design to delivery. Specific topics include: enhancement of the self, efforts of regulatory and accrediting bodies to improve care, methods for evaluating quality, and implementing a holistic approach to care, among others. This book remains essential reading for professionals involved in long term care including assisted living and nursing home administrators, gerontologists, geriatricians, geriatric nurses, and social workers.
