Americans with Disabilities: Current and Future Long Term Services and Supports
Jason R. Woodland
Nova Science Publishers, 2007 - Social Science - 253 pages
Statistics show that one out of every five Americans suffer from a disability. Whether the disability be mental or physical, proper care is required for one's own health and financial needs. Since finding the proper care affects many Americans, financial advisors and policymakers strive to find a system that financially supports Americans with disabilities. This includes research on how to find accommodating long term financial services, how to investigate and manage marketing demands and how to work with external advisors and policy makers. This book explores the many different possibilities of financial reform and services for those with disabilities nation-wide.
