A National Survey of Assisted Living for the Frail Elderly: Report on In-Depth Interviews with Developers


This report describes selected trends in the assisted living industry. It is intended to supplement ongoing research being conducted as part of the National Study of Assisted Living. In this supplementary study, detailed interviews were conducted with 29 carefully selected persons from 21 states who are involved in various aspects of the development of assisted living facilities: architects, builders, developers, and consultants to the development industry.
