However, currently in Taiwan, it seemed those with higher disability or LTCNs leveling might stay in urbanized zones, and with care-worker (i.e. good service utilization)ï¼?conversely, those with under urbanized areas, living alone, undernourished(i.e. insufficient service utilization), those with lower disability or LTCNs leveling staying in sub-urbanized or undernourished zones. And certainly, still no definite or clear causal relationship or dependence linkage can be elucidated. Thus, originally it has been infeasible or with difficult to attain or implement the goal of â??age in placeâ? somewhere, and rather, mandatorily with strong reviewing and welldiscussion on/to need/supply and resources allocation with uncertain-basis to LTC policy/ tactics contemporarily.
