Overview

Assisted living, the fastest growing residential option, burst upon the American landscape in the late 1980ís. These facilities serve persons who no longer are able to live independently and need help with the activities of daily living, but do not need 24-hour nursing care.

James Allen has updated and refined this second edition of Assisted Living Administration to include new information on the Senate Aging Taskforce report of 2003, and the financial shape of the industry. The volume also covers resident care issues, aging theories, as well as new industry data.

This volume is intended as a text for professionals-in-training for certification, in addition to being a resource for the seasoned administrator.

Editorial Reviews

2 Stars from Doody
Lori L. Popejoy
In this book the author describes assisted living administration, including regulations, pertinent definitions, concepts of financial management, staffing, personnel management, and resident assessment and care. The book was written to assist those in assisted living administration to prepare for the assisted living licensing exam. The book is to be used by administrators in assisted living as they prepare for the licensing exam. It would potentially be helpful to a broader audience such as the director of nursing in the assisted living facility. Topics associated with assisted living administration are thoroughly covered. The book is broken down into five distinct subject areas, each of which is thoroughly discussed. The format is very flexible and the subjects can be reviewed out of sequence. The discussion of resident care policies is inadequately referenced to the federal guidelines and the MDS RAI Manual. This book offers a wide variety of subject matter as it relates to assisted living. The topics are current and content is correct. However, the sources are not always referenced as meticulously as they should be.
