Every year the number of Texans facing long-term care decisions, which include the need for medical, social, and personal care services, is growing significantly. The chief objective of this research project is to develop a consumer awareness interactive tool that enables families to explore ways to make long-term care choices that best fit their needs and desires.
This interactive tool consists of four basic elements: a questionnaire for long-term care decision-making that identifies the user's needs and preferences for care services, a scoring algorithm for the questionnaire, a set of profile types that categorize the user's needs and preferences for care services based on their responses to the questionnaire, and a set of scripts that provide pertinent information related to the types of needs and preferences they have indicated.
