Abstract

A variety of demographic factors and policy initiatives have led to increased demand for residential facilities that offer supportive services for the aged and disabled. Over the past 20 years, board and care homes have emerged as the most common setting for the provision of such care outside nursing homes. As a result, the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has had a long-standing interest in the potential of board and care homes to meet the needs of aged and disabled persons for residential services.
