Becoming a Resident in a Total Care Facility

  • Seymour B. Sarason†
Part of the Caregiving: Research, Practice, Policy book series (CARE)


This book raises critical, troublesome questions about how policy makers are thinking about and planning for the fact that in a decade or so there will be a cohort of aged people numbering not in the thousands but in the millions, a trend that will continue for several decades. It inevitably will transform American society. That transformation will be no less dramatic than the waves of immigrations in the nineteenth and early twentieth century or the less-studied and -discussed consequences of the GI Bill for the millions of citizens who were in the armed services in World War II.
