As the caregiver of my deceased mother, and as a nurse who cares about the elderly, I have learned and seen a lot that must be changed in Assisted living level of care or residency..whichever one calls it. I would like to contribute to this conversation.

Living in a campus ‘cottage’ for sixteen years at my 55+ senior-facility in Maine, I’m quite concerned about person-centered interactions, even if not directly living in the assisted, main building. So, I was most pleased to learn of your study. I’m urging our management team to accept your kind invitation so to give ‘voice’ to all our residents.

Thank you, Tracy. Our Board President thinks your research is only for folks (some) living “in” the main facility AND receiving direct care. Not the entire “community”; and not independent living. This matters. Is this so?

The Message Board activity is designed to collect input from residents of assisted living and long-term care homes. In the near future, we will be doing a survey for independent living residents. I will send you the details of this when it is ready
