The Center's research on Long-Term Care includes health and long-term care, transportation and home and community-based services and housing.  Issues of access, cost and quality are addressed through needs assessments, evaluations and policy studies, as well as through education and training programs.  This theme encompasses creative combinations of housing and services, identification of variations in needs and community responses based on race, ethnicity, socioeconomic and other variables, and improved methodologies for assessing need among older persons.  Below are examples of the Center's research, education and training programs focusing on this theme.
