Planning for the 21st Century: Managed Community Long-Term Care in Texas, PRP 122
MetadataShow full item record
This report is the product of a policy research project conducted in the 1996-97 academic year with client support from the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. In addition, numerous individuals contributed to the research and academic efforts. The study informed Senate Bill 273 of the 75th Legislature, a bill proposing to develop a comprehensive guide to senior services. The policy research project participants designed a prototype for a Consumer Awareness Tool, one component of the Guide, designed to help older individuals and their families assess their individual needs in order to make proactive decisions about their long-term care options. Future research will require that the comprehensive consumer guide, including the Consumer Awareness Tool, for senior services be evaluated statewide.
