The typical long term resident is female, age 86, widowed and receives 24-hour supervision and nursing care at a skilled nursing facility.





A core community service, our more than 500 nursing and rehabilitation facilities, assisted living residences, residential care facilities, and continuing care retirement communities provide housing, health care and support services to more than 120,000 people each year, employ over 50,000 staff, and contribute more than $3 billion annually to the state’s economy.  Of the over 120,000 older adults and people with disabilities we care for each year, half of them return to their community within one month.  For those who cannot be treated safely at home, we provide the best possible care and most supportive community.
