The reports provided on this website describe the results of three studies based in community-based care settings in Oregon. One study describes characteristics of residents in assisted living, residential care, and memory care communities; the second study describes characteristics of adult foster care home residents and staff; and the third describes Medicaid clients who lived in one of these types of community-based care settings. Data were collected and analyzed with support from Oregon Department of Health and Human Services.
