California 8-Hour Long Term Care Training

California 8-Hour Long Term Care Training

The term long-term care brings to the mind of many people images of elderly sick people taken from productive society and warehoused in nursing homes as they wait to die. While some long-term care is likely to involve such institutionalization, long-term care is much broader than this unpleasant picture. California 8-Hour Long Term Care Training provides a far more complete picture of long-term care and will consider—among other important issues—the settings in which it is provided, its costs and who pays them, as well as the likelihood that any individual will need long-term care.
