Aging Alaska requires health care planning

Alaska is graying and Anchorage is no exception. Seniors are the state’s fastest growing population. The increase has caused concern about the future of long term care services in Alaska — so much so that the state has sponsored a survey.

You can also find the surveys by visiting the Alaska Department of Health & Social Services website. Once there, use the search function in the upper-right corner and search for “long term care survey.”
