Data Interactive – Long-Term Care: Examining Attitudes Toward Person-Centered Care (2014)

Most older Americans see value in a type of health care and supportive services in which care is directed by the individual needing services, an AP-NORC Center study shows. This study, funded by The SCAN Foundation, shows that there is widespread belief that such person-centered care policies will improve the quality of long-term care for those who need it. At least 6 in 10 Americans age 40 or older say each of seven proposals would be helpful in improving the quality of ongoing living assistance.
