LTC Bullet:  The Fall and Rise of Long-Term Care

Monday  December 18, 2000



LTC Bullets readers often ask us for sample speeches from which they can draw ideas to use in their own public addresses.  We've obliged occasionally by posting transcripts of lectures delivered by Center President Steve Moses on our website at  We've received so much positive feedback on these postings that we have decided to add more of Steve's talks to the site.

The speech we are posting today is titled "The Fall and Rise of Long-Term Care." You can find the transcript at  This lecture traces the history of long-term care service delivery and financing, explains how government reimbursement and regulation dramatically affected the long-term care marketplace, and proposes a new public policy toward long-term care designed to correct deficiencies in the current system.  Anyone who wonders, "How in the world did long-term care get into such a mess?" will find value in this presentation.

The Center for Long-Term Care Financing also has a "speakers bureau."  We offer numerous prepared talks summarized on our website in addition to the speeches for which transcripts are provided.  If your organization or company has a need for a keynoter or speaker on long-term care issues, please contact the Center to schedule an event. A flat fee donation of $5,000 to the Center for Long-Care Financing covers all expenses and includes one full day of Mr. Moses’ time. (It will also help to keep the Center operating.) Center Executive Director David Rosenfeld
is also available to speak.
