National Study on the Impact of COVID-19 in Senior Living

COVID-19 Mortality in Congregate Care 

New research sheds light on COVID-19 mortality rates among seniors, both in congregate settings and their surrounding geographic areas. Mortality rates increase by complexity of care, but, in lower acuity settings such as independent living communities, they are comparable to surrounding populations.  

The study was conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago (NORC), through a grant from NIC, in support of the NIC mission to improve access and choice in seniors housing and care through transparency.
