PACE Adult Day Centers Invited to Participate in Study of LTC Providers

August 1, 2016

The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has initiated the third wave of a nationally representative survey of adult day services centers, including Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE®), as part of its National Study of Long-Term Care Providers.

The biennial study is designed to collect national and state-level information about the operational characteristics, services, participant fee revenue sources, staffing, and demographics and health status of the participants served.

The National PACE Association (NPA) encourages the directors and administrators of adult day services centers and residential care communities who receive an invitation to complete the study questionnaire upon receipt of the information packet. The 30-minute survey can be completed online on a secure website. To ensure data quality, survey respondents should provide accurate responses to the questions, including filling in zeroes where applicable.

NCHS will use the information to produce reports on the major long-term care service sectors, including adult day services centers. The second wave of the survey generated reports and tables with state information. Participating centers made it possible to provide accurate and relevant findings to providers, policy-makers, advocates and researchers.

More information about the survey – including a fact sheet, FAQs, and a link to the 2016 questionnaire – is available on the CDC website.
