Summer course HAPP 405 Contemporary Issues in Long Term Care

Explore changing needs/transitions of the Silver Tsunami

As the population of the U.S. continues to age, it is becoming increasingly more important to provide for the housing, care and social needs of the "Silver Tsunami". This course explores the changing needs and wants of the elderly and the preparation necessary to transition from the work environment to the retirement phase of life.  

This course surveys a very important service and policy component of the health care system. A brief history of the evolution of long-term care provides the foundation to analyze issues such as social, economic and political environments, as well as credentialing, insurance and reimbursement.
