ACCES Research Group
The Alberta Continuing Care Epidemiological Studies (ACCES) was a province-wide research program involving over 2,000 older adults residing in designated assisted/supportive living facilities (DAL) and in long-term care facilities (LTC) between 2006 and 2009, their family caregivers, and the facilities in which they lived. The objectives of ACCES were: a) to examine the health, social needs, and quality of care of older adults in DAL and LTC facilities in Alberta, b) to identify the mix of services provided to these residents, including assistance from family caregivers, and c) to examine health outcomes across settings, taking resident and facility characteristics into account.
