Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Racial and ethnic demographic changes in older adults are on a collision course with the increasing incidence and prevalence of dementia, which is greatly influenced by age demographic changes. Many individuals with dementia require assistance and care beyond what their family can provide. The most intensive and costly of all care options is long-term care. Determining the present and projected needs of a more diverse older adult population in long-term care is crucial when working to decrease health disparities.
