This study compares aggregate data from two cohorts of older adults moving into independent living at an LPC to determine differences in acuity levels. Scores from established measures of cognition and physical quality of life, percent needing hospitalization, and percent moving to a higher level of care were compared. Results show residents are moving in at higher levels of acuity, thus demonstrating a need for OT intervention with older adults for better transition to LPCs.
