Kapp discusses the expanding need for long-term care services by looking at the goal put forward by aging policy analyst Dr. Larry Polivak of closing the gap between knowledge and practice in the United States long-term care financing and delivery system. The article first discusses points of agreement between Kapp and Polivak's viewpoints. Kapp then discusses how their viewpoints diverge and puts forth his own policy views about public versus private responsibility as it applies to long-term care.
