Abstract

Continuing care retirement communities are an increasingly popular housing choice for older adults. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the validity of an entrance tool to predict transitions over a 5-year time period. A sample of 261 participants was recruited. A discriminant analysis revealed that baseline scores correctly classified the Year 5 status of 71.3% of the cases, with 69.6% of those who experienced a change in status classified correctly. The use of the tool potentially provides the staff an objective means for pinpointing the areas where services may be required for the residents' well-being.
