Abstract
Description
The goal of Community Long Term Care (CLTC) is to provide an alternative to nursing home care by offering elderly and disabled individuals the option to live at home for as long as safely feasible and thereby avoid or at least delay nursing home placement. The research proposal considered the findings of the 2007 Winthrop University survey, which indicated a preference by the CLTC clients/families to use the faith-based community as a resource. The intent was to expand this finding to determine: 1) could volunteers in the faith community be used for respite purposes; and 2) could survey instruments be designed to determine the likely success of a new program like this?
