New Issue Page on Younger Residents

February 8th, 2018

Younger residents in long-term care facilities represent a growing but frequently under-served  population. In 2013, 15.1% of residents in nursing homes were younger than 65 (Long-Term Care Providers and Services Users in the United States: Data From the National Study of Long-Term Care Providers, 2013-2014, United States HHS, CDC).  Resources on this page share issues younger residents encounter in long-term care facilities and advocacy considerations for ensuring individualized care and enhanced quality of life and care.  View the issue page here.
