Multidisciplinary approach to long-term care improves quality of care and mortality, study finds

Seniors living in residential care facilities with an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to long-term care experienced a better quality of care and lower mortality rates than seniors living in traditional residential care facilities, according to a new study. The investigators noted that the study's results could apply to seniors living in nursing homes, their own homes and other residential care facilities, Medical News Today reported.
