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 users needs and preferences for care services, a scoring algorithm for the questionnaire, a set of profile types that categorize the users 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.
