The Assisted Living Residence: A Vision for the Future


The Assisted Living Residence: A Vision for the Future Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Assisted living is a vital component of long-term care in the United States. In this volume, care providers, researchers, and decision makers from the private and public sectors examine the intersecting societal forces that are profoundly changing how we offer care and housing for older people who need personal assistance. The contributors examine how assisted living is both a symptom and a catalyst of these changes.

The first section provides an overview of the current state of assisted living care and the factors shaping its future appearance and operations. It contains comprehensive discussions of how consumer demand, government regulation, design philosophies, operation and care approaches, and market forces are shifting and what this means for small and large assisted living operations. In the second part, the contributors examine how the private sector — elder consumers, family members and other caregivers, owners and operators of assisted living residences, professional organizations, technology innovators, and private investors — will influence the future of assisted living. The third part focuses on how the complex layers of federal, state, and local governments will affect the availability and operational styles of assisted living residences.

Clearly written, wide ranging, and featuring up-to-date information and projections for the future, The Assisted Living Residence is an indispensable book for care providers, housing operators, investors, regulators, academics, insurance executives, marketing professionals, and beginning and advanced students of this important elder care alternative.

Foreword by Robert L. Mollica.

Book News Annotation:

Golant (geography, U. of Florida) and Hyde (chief executive officer of Ivy Hall Senior Living, an assisted living company) present 15 papers exploring the likely future of the assisted living industry in the United States. Opening chapters focus on "big picture" trends such as the growth in the number of people with serious physical and cognitive impairments, the convergence of assisted living facilities and nursing homes, and the increasing corporatization of assisted living. The next group of papers discusses private sector factors affecting the appearance and operation of assisted living in the future, including consumer expectations, the changing role of family caregivers, and technological change. The remaining papers address public sector topics including home and community-based services for low-income residents of assisted living facilities, public oversight of services for low-income elders with impairments and health needs, and the expansion of Medicaid.
