In Texas, culture change has reached to nursing homes for elders, long-term care settings for individuals with disabilities, and has affected legislation concerning state supported living centers. This monograph discusses culture change adoption in Texas, organizations that support culture change, and legislation involving culture change and Texas' State Supported Living Centers for individuals with disabilities.
