An Analysis of Long-Term Care Reform Proposals

Publication Date
Jan 31, 1993

The purpose of this paper is to describe the diverse strategies that have been proposed for long-term care reform (for persons age 65+), and to present a balanced discussion of the points that have been made in support of, and in opposition to, each proposal. What the authors believe is "balanced" may not be perceived to be so by those who advocate a particular proposal, but so be it. The goal was to inform the long-term care debate, so that the decisions made as a nation about long-term care policy are ones that can be looked back upon with vindication, not regret. [51 PDF pages]
