CDC needs help from selected AL facilities

Two thousand nine hundred assisted living facilities were randomly selected by the Center Disease Control to participate in the 2018 National Study of Long-Term Care Providers (NSLTCP).  This information helps policy makers to make solid, evidence-based decisions about long-term care in the U.S.

If your residential care community was randomly selected, you've been asked to represent not only your residential care community, but also other comparable residential care communities across the United States. With your help, Health and Human Services will have more accurate estimates about the amount and types of care provided to residents in residential care communities like yours. NSLTCP data will provide benchmarks, which will allow you to compare your residential care communities with other communities like your own. AHCA/NCAL and the Center for Excellence in Assisted Living (CEAL) support this research and regularly use data from the study.

If providers have questions about NSLTCP, they can feel free to contact the NSLTCP Help Desk today at (877) 256-8029.  For more information about the survey visit the NCHS website.
