Welcome Residential Care Community
NOTICE: The National Study of Long-Term Care Providers (NSLTCP) has completed data collection for the 2014 survey and is no longer accepting questionnaires. The anticipated start of data collection for the 2016 NSLTCP survey is May, 2016. Thank you for your participation in 2014 and we look forward to your continued support and participation in 2016, if your residential care community is sampled.
Residential care places are known by many different names. Just a few terms used to refer to these places are assisted living facilities; personal care and adult care homes, facilities, and communities; adult family and board and care homes; adult foster care; homes for the aged; and housing with service establishments. For NSLTCP, we refer to these places and others like them as residential care communities or RCCs.
Your Residential Care Community is Important to Us!
The most reliable information comes directly from providers like you. In order for policy makers to make solid, evidence-based decisions about long-term care in the U.S., it is essential that we collect data from the 11,600 sampled assisted living and similar residential care communities (RCCs) invited to participate in the 2014 National Study of Long-Term Care Providers (NSLTCP). Without your help, it may be impossible to make accurate estimates about the amount and types of care provided to residents in RCCs like yours.
What’s in it for your Residential Care Community?
Data for Comparisons: NSLTCP data will provide benchmarks, which will allow you to compare your RCC with other RCCs like your own.
National and State Statistics: By participating, you will contribute to a more complete and accurate picture of the provision and use of RCCs and services in this country and in your state, which will inform long-term care policies and planning.
