Long-term care (LTC) has often been thought of as the place where people go to die. Thankfully, this is one area of health care that has experienced significant reform over the years. Although there are still many improvements needed, the system has evolved into two basic delivery models: community and institutional.
For this assignment, take on the role of a case manager and prepare a paper on the two primary models used in delivering LTC to present and potential long-term care client families.
You should write a paper that compares and contrasts the two models, being sure to address any questions a family might have when considering long-term care options.
The paper should meet the following minimum requirements:
The paper should be a minimum of 1,050 words (3–4 pages), excluding the cover page, abstract page, and reference page.
The paper should be in proper APA format.
Work should be supported with at least 4 academic or professional peer-reviewed sources that were published within the past 5 years.
