Long Term Care: Policies and Programs (COA elective course)

A recent report from the General Accounting Office estimated that nearly 13 million U.S. citizens need some form of long-term care, that is, needing assistance with everyday activities because of mental or physical disabilities. As the population grows, this number is expected to double by mid-century. This course poses and deals with such questions as: Who needs long-term care and why? Where lie the responsibilities for long-term care giving? How can the mounting costs of long-term care be financed? This course explores different models for family-based, community-based and institutionally-based long-term care, and how policies and practices in the U.S. compare with models in other countries.

Neetu Dhawan-Gray, a longtime advocate of elders and elder policy planning at local, state and national levels, serves on local and national boards on elder and care giver issues.
