Participate in the CDCís Survey of Long Term Care Provider

In the coming weeks, the CDC will begin contacting providers to participate in a new survey aimed at generating quality data related to assisted living, residential care communities, and other senior housing options. If contacted, make your voice heard, by participating in this important study.

In just a few weeks, CDCís National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) will launch the new National Study of Long-Term Care Providers (NSLTCP).  NSLTCP includes a survey of a random, nationally representative sample of residential care providers.

NSLTCPís purpose is to track trends in the supply and use of five major types of long-term care providers Ė assisted living and other residential care communities, adult day services centers, home health agencies, nursing homes, and hospices. Directors of residential care communities will be asked to provide information through a mail or web questionnaire about the characteristics of residential care communities, the services offered, and staffing; and the demographics, functional status and health of the residents served.

Data obtained through mail and web questionnaires will be used to produce national and state estimates (wherever possible) to help inform long-term care providers, planners, researchers, and policymakers about community-based care, which is increasingly becoming an important component of the long-term care spectrum in this country. 

Each response from the approximately 11,700 residential care providers in our sample is vital to capturing an accurate picture of residential care in the U.S. Your senior living community may be one of them. Participation is voluntary and the information provided will be used only for statistical purposes and held in the strictest confidence.

The power of this survey depends on your participation.  If your place is contacted, make your voice heard by participating in the study.
