This study describes the correlation between general health condition and the educational attainment of the California population 65 and older. As the population ages the need for standardized quality care for the elderly will become more prevalent. Understanding the quality of care the elderly receive is based on their education level will determine what changes need to be implemented to avoid disparity in care regardless of age or education level. As individuals achieve a higher level of education especially as they age proves that their general health condition remains high and allows for longevity of life and maintains quality of life. It is important for the elderly population to have a high quality of life and general health condition.
Many long term care organizations promote the home like environment and see tremendous improvement with their patients as well as the family members feeling comfortable having their loved ones there.
