National Survey of Individuals 60+ Living Independently

National Survey of Individuals 60+ Living Independently
You are invited to participate in a research study to help us improve nursing home and assisted living care!
The Designation of Excellence (DoE) in Person-Centered Long-Term Care project team is looking for your input. The University of Maine Center on Aging and its research partner, The Cedars of Portland, Maine* are looking for older persons aged 60 or over currently living independently (not in a nursing home or assisted living community). If you or someone you know fits that description, please take this survey about your expectations and preferences about person-centered care should you or a loved one ever need to live in a long-term care setting.
A better understanding of your concerns and integrating your preferences and priorities into the DoE will ensure its relevance for future users and for long-term care providers engaged in strategic planning.
The survey is entirely anonymous and should take you about 15-20 minutes. When you click on the link below, you will first review a project flier and an Informed Consent document that outlines how the project team will use the data it collects from survey respondents.
Thank you for your participation!
This is a research project of the University of Maine Center on Aging in collaboration with The Cedars of Portland, Maine, a long-term care community.
