When California’s RCFE Act was
passed in 1985, the legislature referred
to the continuum of long-term social
and health support services, stating
“residential care facilities for the elderly
are central in that continuum”—a need
identified. At the same time, Assisted
Living’s early pioneers were developing
models that, to some degree, drew
upon models in other countries—a need
beginning to be addressed. As the world
continues to shrink, it is appropriate to
continue to learn from the perspectives,
trends, and activities that can be found
beyond our borders. Please enjoy this
News & Views
as we take a look at
what is happening today in the national
and international scene, as well as our
corner of the world.
