This chapter examines the quality of care in long-term care facilities in the U.S. It describes the nursing home as a primary focus of long-term care and reviews relevant literature concerning end-of-life care in nursing homes. It compares hospice and nursing homes care and suggests that the overall cultural and policy milieu in the U.S. seems to be changing slowly towards some increased acceptance of palliative care at the end of life in nursing homes.

Keywords:   long-term care facilities, U.S, nursing homes, hospice care, palliative care
