[White House Conference on Aging, 1981. Information Briefs #1 - 22.]
White House Conference on Aging, Washington, DC.
This document contains 22 information briefs from the 1981 White House Conference on Aging. Four of the briefs provide data on health, available services, income, and employment from a report comparing the well-being of older people in three rural and urban locations. National estimates are provided about the need for meals for older people, and about the number of older people at the poverty level. The housing situation of older adults is examined in one brief and is followed by a report on congregate housing. Services and care needs of the elderly and the cost of such services are discussed in nine briefs dealing with: (1) preventive care; (2) the comparative costs of home services and institutionalization; (3) the cost impact of possible changes to Medicaid and Medicare; (4) total national expenditure for nursing home care; (5) provision of services; (6) older adults' consumption of health resources; and (7) home care services for older people. Other briefs discuss the nutritional health status of older people, the need for a national information system on the conditions of older people, disability problems of men, and crime and the elderly.
