Discussion Board Assignment #7

Chapter9–Long Term Care

Answer the following questions on Long Term Care:

  1. More than three-fourths of the elderly needing assistance is cared for by family members, many of whom also   work outside the home. What implications does this have for employers? What types of employer policies might    be appropriate regarding those engaged in providing long-term care for a family member?
  2. Discuss:  In what ways does assuring quality in the long-term care industry pose special challenges to regulators              and consumers?
  3. The value of informal long-term care provided by family members and friends is estimated at over $450 billion annually, more than double the national expenditures for skilled nursing and home care combined. Much of this                cost would fall to government if it were not for this informal system. Would you support government assistance     for informal caregivers, through mechanisms such as tax reduction incentives, or subsidy for respite care? Why         or why not? If not, what alternative measures would you propose to help keep the informal system intact?
  4. Shortages of health care personnel in the long-term care industry pose critical future challenges to the health    care system. Review reasons for these shortages. Suggest government and institutional policy changes that          might help attract more workers to this industry.

ORDER NOW FOR CUSTOMIZED AND ORIGINAL ESSAY PAPERS 

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
