  • Introduction
    • The concepts of senior adult care, are all intertwined but also fragmented into minor parts in each separate direction. The Past to the future has changed these areas of senior adult care options, making minor focuses from the past into major arena areas of the future. Much of these changes result in the quality of care verse the quantity of the dollar spent, whether it is private, federal, managed, or state funding.
