dc.description.abstractAn issue that challenges our society today is how to provide support for our elders so that they can "age in place." As an elderly person's needs change, he or she may have to move from an independent setting (such as their own home) to a setting designed for more hands-on nursing care. In Washington State, models called Adult-Family Homes, or Boarding Homes are being promoted as viable means to help elders age in place and give residents an opportunity to remain in a homelike environment until death. This paper discusses the Adult-Family/Boarding Home programs in Washington State and compares them with similar facilities in other states. Methods of assessing the quality of resident care in these community facilities are presented.
