Between home and nursing home: the board and care alternative
Offering vital information about this expanding housing option, the authors discuss what such homes are like and how they operate, how they are managed, what to look for when choosing a facility, how to monitor the care offered, what kinds of supervision and services should be available, and activities that contribute to residents' well-being."In this book, the authors have clearly laid out some thought-provoking issues that can benefit all health care providers, users, and significant others .... The book is a must read for those interested in purchasing board and care services and for those who are providing such services". -- Adult Residential Care Journal
