Caring for the Disabled Elderlyanalyzes the major options for reforming the way long-term care is financed. It first explores the potential market for private long-term care insurance and other private sector initiatives. Then it turns to the advantages and disadvantages of various public sector programs. The study recommends both a greatly expanded role for the private sector in financing long-term care and a new public insurance program.
