Assisted living, the fastest growing residential option, burst upon the American landscape in the late 1980's. These facilities serve persons who no longer are able to live independently and need help with the activities of daily living, but do not need 24-hour nursing care. James Allen has updated and refined this second edition of ""Assisted Living Administration"" to include new information on the Senate Aging Taskforce report of 2003, and the financial shape of the industry. The volume also covers resident care issues, aging theories, as well as new industry data. This volume is intended as a text for professionals-in-training for certification, in addition to being a resource for the seasoned administrator.
