We need your input!

A local group is working on a plan for affordable and medicaid “assisted living” - housing for seniors that provides support services such as meals, laundry, housecleaning, or  help with dressing, bathing or medication administration.

This anonymous survey will take about 5 minutes and your input will help us develop the best plan possible. THANK YOU!
