This study examined race differences in changes in source of long-term care.
We addressed the following questions: (1) Are there differences between African American and White populations in the patterns of transitions among community long-term care, institutionalization, and death? (2) Are there differences between African American and White populations in sociodemographic characteristics and functional limitations influencing source of long-term care in a two-year follow-up sample? (3) Controlling for socioeconomic status, health status, level of informal care, and demographic variables, are there differences between African American and White populations in patterns of change to informal and mixed (informal and formal) care among community-dwelling frail old persons? (4) What are the predictors of change patterns within African American and White populations of older frail persons?
