Summary

Learn how to make elder housing more homelike!

Taking an incisive look at assisted living for the elderly, Assisted Living: Sobering Realities is an important book for the professionals who work with aging Americans and their families. This vital book provides a multidisciplinary overview of the world of assisted living for older Americans. With unique insight and a keen clinical perspective, Assisted Living examines a variety of topics: the dilemma of aging in place, the realities of end-of-life care, and the ins and outs of residential care supply. Easy-to-read graphs and charts make the data user-friendly.

This book delivers current information on:
  • the housing needs of elderly renters, with case studies of 109 residents in two facilities
  • the need for improved housing and services for low-income elderly, providing an overview of how successful facilities take a comprehensive approach in linking low-income elders with community-based services
  • the advantages and disadvantages of residential care facilities
  • research about aging in place from providers and residents’ perspectives
  • the unmet needs of the elderly who qualify for housing assistance
  • how visitation patterns affect the overall satisfaction and quality of life of assisted living residents
