TRANSPORTATION FOR THE ELDERLY AND THE HANDICAPPED IN WISCONSIN. REPORT 5. SURVEY OF NURSING HOMES AND RESIDENTIAL CARE FACILITIES

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation initiated a statewide study in 1975 to learn of the supply of, and demand for, transportation services for the elderly and handicapped in Wisconsin. The Department identified nursing homes and residential care facilities as significant providers of paratransit services to the elderly and the handicapped. This report presents the findings of a transportation-oriented survey of nursing homes and residential care facilities conducted in January 1976. This survey involved the mailing out of a questionnaire to 506 licensed nursing homes and 33 residential care facilities not affiliated with nursing homes. The purpose of this survey is (1) to obtain an overview of transportation services provided by nursing homes and residential care facilities, and (2) to augment the data obtained from the full paratransit industry survey.
