FIFTY STATE SURVEY OF AGENCIES INVOLVED
IN THE REGULATION OF BOARD AND CARE HOMES
|START TIME: _________________________|
Hello, my name is _________________________ with the Research Triangle Institute in North Carolina. We are conducting a study of state involvement in the regulation of board and care facilities for the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP). The purpose of the study is to describe various aspects of each state's board and care environment. We are talking with several people within every state who have experience with a specific aspect of board and care, for instance you have been identified as one of the people within your state with experience in the _________________________ of board and care homes. The information which we collect will be used to develop state profiles of board and care involvement, as well as to provide a summary of board and care activities across the U.S. WE WILL PROVIDE AARP WITH A DATABASE CONTAINING INFORMATION ON ALL RESPONSES, AS WELL AS, A LIST OF CONTACT NAMES.
