  • The Younger Adult in the Long-Term Care Setting

In the past 10 years, adults ages 31 to 64 have been the fastest growing population in nursing homes. Younger adults in long-term care often have issues not seen as often in the elderly such as: more diagnosis related to developmental disabilities; higher prevalence of injuries related to trauma and prevalence of chronic and neurologic disorders and psychiatric diagnoses; and many more. This manual will help address these and many more issues including how to integrate them into a population with very different wants and needs. Learn more.
