Adults who receive long-term services and supports experience better health and well-being when their care reflects their values and preferences. In order to make this vision a reality for all Americans, we need evidence-based state and national policy, regulations and financing that promote preference-based, person-centered care.
In this section of the website, we share publications, presentations and recommendations based on our research and direct experience working with provider communities to advance preference-based care in long-term services and supports settings.
