Slide notes:This concludes lecture d of Delivering Health Care, Part 1. This final lecture described different types of long-term care facilities. In short, multiple health care options exist for medical needs, mental health problems, and substance abuse, as well as end-of-life care through hospice. The location of care might be a school, the home, a community facility, or a hospital. Variations are evident in the types, quality, and costs of long-term care, in part because facilities may or may not be certified for reimbursement by Medicare and Medicaid. Care for older adults raises complex financial, legal, and ethical issues, and census data indicates that the need for elder care will only increase as the demographics of the populations change. 29
