Look for long-term care facility listings in your area. Long-term care facilities are those that offer rehabilitative, restorative, and/or ongoing skilled nursing care to patients or residents who require assistance with daily activities. Nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, inpatient behavioral health facilities, and long-term chronic care hospitals are all examples of long-term care facilities. Choose one of these facilities and request an interview with the facility’s administrator.

Describe the admissions criteria, the programs and services offered by the facility, the monthly costs of living in the facility, and how residents can afford to cover the costs.

Describe the Administrator’s career path that led to his/her current position, as well as the professional requirements that the Administrator must meet in order to qualify for his/her occupation/position.

Describe the current challenges that the Administrator perceives to be confronting his/her facility, as well as how these issues are being addressed. What changes does the Administrator see on the horizon (particularly with the Baby Boomers on the horizon) that will have an impact on his or her industry?
