New book on Long Term Care

Howard Gleckman brings attention to a new book on Long Term Care, that can be downloaded for free. As readers know, LTC is a near and dear topic to this blog (a recent post), and I will look forward to integrating this book into my teaching. This recent post highlights lots of LTC issues.

Long term care is something easily thought about “tomorrow”….but we need to be thinking about constructing a coherent LTC financing and provision system today. The problems won’t just go away.
