LTC Bullet:  One-A-Day Mental Vitamins

Monday  February 11, 2002


***SPECIAL ALERT:  We'll be adding content to The Zone steadily in the future.  Watch for two new features coming soon:  "The LTC Reader" and "The Data Base."  We'll read the trade and academic literature on long-term care and give you brief summaries of the "must know" articles in The LTC Reader.  We'll track new studies and reports and give you key data and statistics you need to know in "The Data Base."  Just like our popular "LTC Week in Review," these new features will help you stay ahead of the pack in knowledge and competency.  Think of them as "One-A-Day" mental vitamins; five minutes a day to keep you on top of the news and the issues.  If you are interested in long-term care, you belong in The Zone.***

Content posted on the Center for Long-Term Care Financing's website "donor-only zone" on Monday, February 11, 2002, includes the following "LTC Week in Review" titles:

"Affluenza or Necrosis"

"Et Tu, Medicare"

"States and Medicaid Sink Deeper and Deeper"

"Getting in the Swim with Alzheimer's"

"Nursing Homes Self-Insure"

As a reminder, donors to the Center of $100 or more per year may access The Zone almost immediately.  Just  send your preferred user name and password (10 characters or less) to  Amy will confirm your user name and password are active, usually within a day or two.

If you aren't a zone-level contributor yet, go to and click on "Support the Center."  There, you can contribute online directly from a bank account or with a credit card.  You'll receive a confirmation and receipt by email.  Otherwise, mail your check to the Center at 2212 Queen Anne Avenue North, #110, Seattle, WA, 98109.  Contributions to the Center for Long-Term Care Financing are fully tax-deductible.

Here's another option.  Maybe you work for a company that already provides corporate-level support to the Center for Long-Term Care Financing.  If so, you may qualify for free or discounted access to The Zone.  Email to find out.  If your company does not support the Center yet, encourage them to do so.  Tell them access to the The Zone will help you do your job better, faster, and more profitably. 

Keep an eye on The Zone.  We aim to make it a "graduate school" for successful LTC professionals.  We'll keep the rest of the website and LTC Bullets free for those who are still learning the basics.
