Long-term care is an increasingly important and rapidly changing component of today’s social services delivery system. Long-term care services and programs have evolved into a variety of institutional and noninstitutional modalities. The NASW Standards for Social Work Services in Long-Term Care Facilities reflect changing practices and policies and may be regarded as a basic tool for social work practice in long-term care facilities, although practice priorities may vary among settings.
