Working Papers on Long-Term Care


These Papers describe the current state of knowledge about long-term care in the U.S., and serve as a knowledge base for the difficult analytic tasks that lie ahead. They are based on the work of HHS's Task Force on Long-Term Care up to January 1981 and contain data that have not been available before. Five Papers make up this document: (1) an overview and summary; (2) a description of the long-term care population; (3) a description of services and settings; (4) a description of programs and financing for long-term care services; and (5) the dynamics of the current system.
