My First Entry

This is my first entry here and to start with,
Let's talk first about what is a Long Term Care.

Long Term Care is part of our health care system and that includes different types of facilities, such as hospitals, home health care or agencies, clinics, mental health, hospices and also drug addiction facilities. It is the important part of our system since the growth of older adults is increasing.

Long term care facilities has a lot of names, including nursing facilities, nursing homes, assisted living , and residential care also known as home care. But on this blog I will mostly focus on nursing homes, since most of my knowledge are more on nursing homes patients or residents.

In all my coming post, I can not promise, If I can provide images from my real residents that I taking care of because we are protecting their privacy and so I am.. I know others will let me do but for the sake of the "residents privacy", I will try not to. Maybe If I can post some pic, it is from magazines or newspaper that I read.

'Till later for more update.
