Ownership and Quality of Care in Residential Facilities for the Elderly.
Lemke, Sonne; Moo, Rudolf H.
Gerontologist, v29 n2 p209-15 Apr 1989
Explored hypothesis that the quality of care received by the elderly in a residential facility is related to the ownership of the facility. Evaluated 300 facilities using the Multiphasic Environmental Assessment Procedure (MEAP). Results indicated that nonprofit facilities (n=44) provided a more comfortable setting, higher resident control and more cohesiveness than did proprietary settings. (Author/BHK)
