Longterm Care

Published Date






In his book, “It shouldn’t be this way: The failure of long-term care,” Robert Kane, a University of Minnesota professor on aging, documents the difficulties that he and his sister encountered when trying to arrange long-term care for their ailing mother. We asked Kane: What should people know about caring for their aging parents. <Clip: “The first thing that you ought to know… get the business of the hospital done.”> Kane says he doesn’t believe government will do more for families until the public demands it. <Clip: “There isn’t a politician…and to make the lives of people better.”>
