This book is intended as both a college text and a reference source for professionals, policy makers, and regulators. The text provides a sound reference source for anyone wishing to gain a better understanding of the long-term care system. It is concise, but complete, defining the various segments of the system. It also describes how the system developed to its current state, compares it to an ideal system, and projects future trends likely to impact the system. The earlier editions have been used by multiple colleges and universities for their long-term care administration courses. It has also been adopted as a cited reference for the national licensing examination prepared by the National Association of Long-Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB) which is used by all fifty state licensing boards (and the District of Columbia), and for the Certification examination of the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA). It covers the full continuum of long-term care in enough detail to develop a sound understanding of the system, yet does not get bogged down in overly-specific detail as some texts do. Features: 1. Explains how the long-term care system developed and compares it to an ideal system, 2. Describes the primary types of long-term care providers (nursing facilities, assisted living, subacute care, senior housing, community-based care), presenting each in a similar manner, making it easy to compare and contrast them, 3. Covers how the providers interact with each other and with consumers and regulators - focusing specifically on how they compete, cooperate, and integrate; how they are regulated; financing; quality; ethical issues, 4. Discusses how long-term care providers are governed and managed, with chapters also devoted to leadership and culture change, technology, and marketing, 5. Outlines future trends and their projected impact on long-term care, and discusses how managers should act for success in the future. Students will find: 1. Case studies with each of the provider chapters, showing how they serve specific consumers. 2. Discussion questions and vocab terms at the end of each chapter 3. Online supplemental materials with both chapter-based interactive flash cards and an overall Glossary on-line

When New York–based graphic designers and long-time friends Timothy Goodman and Jessica Walsh found themselves single at the same time, they decided to try an experiment. The old adage says that it takes 40 days to change a habit—could the same be said for love? So they agreed to date each other for 40 days, record their experiences in questionnaires, photographs, videos, texts, and artworks, and post the material on a website they would create for this purpose. What began as a small experiment between two friends became an Internet sensation, drawing 5 million unique (and obsessed) visitors from around the globe to their site and their story since it was launched in July 2013. 40 Days of Dating: An Experiment is a beautifully designed, expanded look at the experiment and the results, including a great deal of material that never made it onto the site, such as who they were as friends and individuals before the 40 days and who they have become since. Note: 40 Days of Dating has a special binding that allows it to open very flat by attaching the endpapers to the inside covers.

Carlstedt presents cutting-edge assessment methods, intervention procedures, and research that are critical for use in evidence-based practice.
