Dear

It’s time to schedule your appointment!

Thank you for agreeing to participate in the National Survey of Residential Care Facilities (NSRCF). It is the first ever national study of assisted living and residential care, and it is being conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE).

When we spoke earlier to complete the screening interview, you asked that I contact you at another time to set up your appointment for the on-site visit. Our interviewers are flexible and will accommodate your schedule.

I will give you a call in a few days to schedule an appointment time that is convenient for you. Or, please feel free to call me toll free at 1–_____–_____–________ or email me at ______________________.

I look forward to speaking with you again.

Sincerely,

If you have participated in the National Survey of Residential Care Facilities (NSRCF) in the past few weeks, thank you so much!

If you haven’t completed the survey, please consider scheduling an appointment to do so. We understand that you are very busy; however, we can find a time to meet that is convenient to your schedule. This first-time national study collects information about the characteristics of residential care communities and the types of services they provide. Your responses are very important to provide accurate information on long-term care in the United States.

In a few days you will receive a call from our field office to discuss this study. If you prefer, you may call ___________________ toll-free at 866–____–______ or send an e-mail to _______________@rti.org. An NSRCF staff member will respond promptly.

Thank you in advance for your help with this important endeavor.

RTI International
