Survey: Long-term Supports and Services in Tennessee

State Survey to let your voice be heard.

The State of Tennessee is looking at the way people find and use long-term services and supports. The state is planning for a "No Wrong Door" System.

The survey is for people with disabilities that currently may get help with bathing, dressing, eating, walking, and getting in and out of a bed or chair. Other long-term services may also include help with housework, preparing meals, taking medicine, shopping, and managing money. The survey is also for stakeholders in long-term care services.

The state of Tennessee is attempting to make it easy to learn how to get long-term care services. You may give the state ideas about how to make it easier to get services and supports. The state says you can help by taking the survey and explaining what does and does not work for you. They want you to be able to find out what you need no matter which agency you ask.

You do not have to take the survey. The state says the survey will not affect your services or your relationship with any agency. Tennessee claims that responses will be protected and confidential.
