National Study of Long Term Care Providers Currently Collecting Data

The National Center for Health Statistics is contacting senior living communities throughout the country in an effort to generate national data on long term care. ALFA encourages those contacted to participate; ensuring professionally managed senior living communities are represented in the data set.

ALFA and other assisted living associations are encouraging members who are contacted by federal researchers to participate in the National Study of Long-Term Care Providers (NSLTCP).
 
The National Center for Health Statistics, which is conducting this study, would like to thank those of you who have participated so far.
 
Of the approximately 11,700 communities throughout the United States that have been randomly selected to participate, 2,651 communities have responded.  NCHS will send out another survey packet the week of November 12th, and they are asking RCC directors or designated staff to respond by November 21st.    By law, all data collected and released will be kept in strict confidence and used only for statistical purposes and no individual provider, staff or resident can be identified. 
 
ALFA strongly encourages members to participate in this national study, if contacted. Results are expected to be released late 2013. Learn more about NSLTCP.
