re: Worldwide point-of-view[edit]

The first step in making this a more universal article was to put "medicare" and "medicaid" under the topic of Funding, as opposed to them having sections above and prior to. Only one small anonymous improvement, but it's a start... More to come, I expect... 24.222.178.62 (talk) 00:31, 4 June 2010 (UTC) Long Term Care worker

More on making the article more universal - I put the paragraphs on "medicare" and "medicaid" under a sub-section specific to the US under the general topic of Funding. I also added some information on the LTC funding mechanisms from another country. Hopefully more country examples will be added over time from different parts of the world.

I fail to see that the external link to guidetolongtermcare.com is inappropriate since it is an informational website and not commerical as Finlay McWalter claims. Muspiel 21:08, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

culture change in Long Term Care[edit]

Can you put an entry in Wikipedia about culture change in long term care? It's the phenomenon of changing how long term care services are provided - anywhere from offering more services in the home to changing how nursing homes look. Examples: Eden Alternative, Green House, Wellspring, etc. I think it is timely to have such an addition to Wikipedia. Thanks!

I added some brief information in this article (backed by references) on how demographic changes and societal changes are changing the needs for LTC around the world. Guptan99 (talk) 17:59, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

educational material needs to be replaced. Feel fee to subsitute sources if you think it is promotional[edit]

I fail to see how a link to "Health Insurance Association of America" document located on a website is considered spam or advertising. Perhaps if the wiki editors even took the time before editing they too would understand. I did mention in the link comments that if the orignal could be found to the "Health Insurance Association of America" original location. ie on their website Then the link can be substituted, therefore it has nothing to do with promotions activities.

Also the second booklet is a booklet used on many long term care websites. (you can google "dignity for life" pdf and you will get many hits. I do not know the original source, however if you have the original source please feel free to replace the link.

It has nothing to do with search engine links but has to do with educational content.

If there is no addition to this I will just put it back in.

There are three different articles you've added, so I'll address them in turn:
  1. "Planning for long-term care" is a quality brochure with good information, and I have always agreed that it should stay.
  2. "An Employer's Guide to Long-Term Care Insurance" is a link that I initially removed because it was broken. Now that it appears to be working, I've had a chance to review it. That said, I still don't think it should stay; it's essentially a sales pitch on why employers should provide the insurance as a benefit.
  3. "Dignity for Life" is quite clearly marketing material distributed by one Mr. Philip W. Shields. Please read Wikipedia's Policy on external links; we refrain from linking to materials that "primarily exist to sell products or services".
I hope this addresses your questions. If anyone else has input, please feel free to contribute. Cheers, Vectro 05:08, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
