Residence Options for Older and Disabled Clients
By Lawrence A. Frolik

Recent census figures report that more than 35 million Americans are age 65 or older. Medical and scientific discoveries have prolonged life expectancy, and this, in turn, has led to needs that are specific to older persons and their caregivers. One of the most pressing of these is the need for appropriate housing. This book is a comprehensive guide to the many different types of housing available for aging and disabled individuals. It starts with the most independent type of living, proceeds through transitional forms of housing and ends with an in-depth discussion of medically assisted housing. With this book you will learn not only about the various types of housing but the pros and cons of each.

Topics include:
* Condominiums and Cooperatives * Planned Communities and Homeowner Associations * Continuing Care Retirement Communities * Assisted Living * Group Homes for the Disabled * Nursing Homes * Hospice Care
* And more
So whether you are a lawyer, a financial planner, a geriatric case manager or a caregiver, this book will expand your knowledge of the various types of housing and will offer assistance in selecting the most appropriate place for a specific individual.
