Editorial Reviews

Lori L. Popejoy
This book offers an overview of the long-term industry including discussions on types of services available, financing of services, consumers' roles, state and federal regulations, and quality assessment. The purpose is to offer a broad overview of information about long-term care. It is designed to be a practical, usable resource for managers in long-term care. This book is written as a reference for long-term care managers as well as a textbook for management students. It is written in distinct chapters about subjects related to long-term care. The editor discusses some important but controversial changes in the industry such as reimbursement, effects of consumer demands, and state regulations regarding service settings. Challenging issues such as technology, information management, and ethics are reviewed. Case studies are presented at the end of some of the chapters to help illustrate the benefits of different care settings such as nursing home services, homecare, subacute care, and adult day care. The editor covered this complex topic very comprehensively. This would be an excellent textbook for students of management and a valuable resource for managers in long-term care.
