As the elderly population in Florida has increased, long-term care needs have also expanded, and more Floridians are receiving assistance at home, in assisted living facilities (ALFs), or in nursing homes. However, as the population receiving these services increased, the cost and challenges faced by the providers have increased as well. Commissioned by the Florida Assisted Living Association (FALA), the University of Florida Bureau of Economic and Business Research (BEBR) developed and administered an online survey to assess these challenges. In addition, a phone survey was conducted to obtain information about Floridians' financial preparation for living in an ALF. The main findings and information can be found in the forty-three (430 page report.
