Assisted Living; what to look for and what to watch out for

Our speaker is:

Christina Selder, M.S. Gerontology *
Co-founder & Principal Investigator for CARR  

Consumer Advocates for RCFE Reform (CARR) puts the assisted living care model into context for seniors and families. CARR explains the continuum of care, then walks consumers through each element of assisted living, detailing what to look for and what to watch out for when making a placement decision.

Her Master's Thesis, "Maximizing Medicaid's Continuum of Care:  An Analysis of Assisted Living Facilities and Nursing Home Residents", was published by Montezuma Publishing, SDSU, 2008.  The link will take you to access her thesis.
