Findings from a HCFO study led by David C. Grabowski, Ph.D., professor at Harvard Medical School, were highlighted in the January 5 Boston Globe article, “Mass. Lags on Homes for Assisted Living.” The article discusses reasons behind and consequences of the relative lack of assisted living facilities in the state of Massachusetts. In their HCFO-sponsored study, Grabowski and colleagues examined the effect of assisted living growth on nursing home occupancy rates and resident acuity and reliance on Medicaid.
