I want to personally thank you for participating in the National Survey of Residential Care Facilities and for assisting the RTI International field representative who conducted the survey in your community. It is only through the cooperation of directors like you that we are able to conduct such a study to produce for the first time, important national data about assisted living communities and the care they provide. The findings will be an invaluable source of information for health care professionals, the long-term care industry, and the general public.
Again, I appreciate the time and effort you have given in support of this study.
