Health care continues to create new services to provide care to patients that are cost effective and efficient. With the aging population, more emphasis is being place on skilled nursing facilities (nursing homes), assisted living facilities (ALFs), and continuing care communities (CCCs) in particular.
Identify a specific skilled nursing facility (nursing homes), assisted living facility (ALFs), and continuing care community (CCCs) in your community and discuss the similarities and differences between this organization’s structure, staffing profile, and service emphasis compared to general acute care hospitals that also provide care to the elderly.
