Special care unit growth has become a challenge for Alzheimer’s advocates concerned about the quality of long-term care. Nearly 60 percent of nursing home residents have Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. In recent years, the number of nursing homes that have developed SCUs designed to serve residents with Alzheimer’s disease has proliferated. Special care dementia units now represent one of the fastest-grow- ing parts of the nursing home business. Until recently, facilities did not have to meet any specific standards, beyond the nursing home regulations and stan- dards to which all nursing homes are held, in order to promote themselves as SENIOR RESOURCES 602-264-HELP Planning,coordinatingand deliveringcriticalservices andeducationto olderadults andtheircaregivers,adults withphysicaldisabilities and long term care needs, and those with HIV.
