The Veterans Administration has assumed a leadership role in the development of geriatric programs for older veterans, particularly those from World War II. Increased demands for VA care and for new services have led to an exploration of improved integration of VA and community resources. This book begins with an overview of geriatric care including the special illness behaviors of elders and the attitudes of their care providers, followed by a description of geriatric and extended care and the legislative mandate of the VA. Analysis of current patterns of utilization and descriptions of innovative programs for service coordination and case management lead to suggested options for improving integration of VA and non VA services. The book will be of great interest to policy makers, program planners, and service providers.
