Question ID: 436797
I'm working on a book about nursing homes and want to provide some
statistical references AND some quality resources for readers in the back of
the book.  I already have some sources for good general nursing home
information, but I still need specific information from
credible sources about:

How many people in the USA and Worldwide are currently living in nursing homes?

What is the predicted trend for nursing home admissions (meaning how
fast is it growing or shrinking?)

What are some good resources for people to learn how they can pay for
a nursing home stay?

What are some credible and sound organizations that people can contact to
complain if they wish to report a problem in their nursing home?  By
credible and sound, I DON'T mean radical organizations that are
against nursing homes by default, or attorneys who profit by
encouraging claims.  I mean neutral (possibly government?) bodies who
will investigate the claims.

If it's easy to get, please include the same info about Long Term Care
in general, but I'm MOST interested in nursing homes in particular,
and more concerned with a *quick* and complete answer about that
aspect than a delayed (by more than one day) answer that includes LTC
info too.

I hope that's enough info.  I'm basically looking for a list of
quality resources and credible references, with contact info,
traditional reference information (author, name of publication, etc.)
and a brief summary of each one.  By brief I mean one to three

I'll tip for speed on this one, as I need the information soon.  Thanks!
There is no answer at this time.

The nursing home industry has gotten bad publicity in resent decades
in the USA, so many are scrambling to produce alternatives while
others are trying to improve nursing home care without sending costs
sky high. The comparitive success of these groups, and the ecconomic
fate of the middle class will determine if nursing home populations
shrink slowly or maintain their share of the still growing population.
Other countries could be quite different.   Neil
