This report summarizes a survey conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research on long-term care in America. The results found that in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic that was especially devastating for nursing homes, the vast majority of Americans want to age at home and want government action to help them do so. This report also discusses ways for government programs and insurance companies to help organize this care for the aging older adult population.
