We need your help! Your input and insight is needed to help evaluate current and projected senior housing and other long-term care needs in the community.
Converse County's Long-Term Care Steering Committee is currently evaluating the county's long-term care needs and identifying new opportunities for providing services to our elderly citizens. Today’s elderly have many long-term care choices. In fact, most communities offer a continuum of care including support services (e.g., transportation or meals), home-health care, independent living, boarding homes, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing homes, and hospice facilities. Converse County has many high quality services for seniors, but there appears to be a need for additional pieces of that continuum of care model.
To help evaluate current and projected senior long-term care housing needs in the community, Converse County and Memorial Hospital of Converse County jointly came together to fund a market and financial feasibility study for long-term care in Converse County. Part of the feasibility study process will be to complete an analysis of projected long-term care needs, market demand, growth potential and competition in Converse County, with special emphasis on the need for one or more Assisted Living Facilities in the county. Community Builders, Inc. (CBI), was hired to complete the Feasibility Study.
Please complete this survey so that we can evaluate how residents in Converse County view long-term care needs in our community. Please complete the survey before November 20, 2013. You can drop your completed survey off at any of the following locations:
• Glenrock Health Center • Glenrock Town Hall • Oregon Trail Clinic • Glenrock Senior Center • Memorial Hospital of Converse County/Ambassador Desk • Douglas Senior Center • Converse County Courthouse - Clerk's Office • Frontier Drug
