Grants to USA researchers for projects to benefit the elderly in long-term residential facilities. A letter of intent must be submitted prior to the full application. Funding is intended to support research studies that can improve the care and the quality of life for seniors in nursing homes, assisted living, and other congregate care facilities.

Two key requirements of the Another Look grant program: Researchers must use existing datasets for the research being conducted and must include stakeholders from clinical, programmatic or policy arenas on the project team to help inform the research. The Another Look grant program will now allow researchers to allocate some grant funds to the collection of new data if it will enhance the utility of the project outcomes for improving the quality of care. Applicants will be asked to provide more extensive information on the role of the stakeholders with whom they will be collaborating on the project.

Researchers applying for this grant must include a stakeholder in the care delivery or policy arena with whom they will collaborate and who is willing to work with the researcher to develop products such as infographics, tool kits, or training materials that are based on the research findings and could be used by those stakeholders to improve the quality of care or the quality of life for residents in long term care.

The Foundation welcomes all topics related to improving the quality in long term care facilities but is particularly interested in supporting research focused on high priority issues that were identified through an environmental scan recently conducted by the Foundation. These high priority topics are:

  • increasing the availability and use of palliative, end of life, and hospice care
  • assessing the impact of innovations in staffing roles and expertise on resident quality of life
  • assessing the role of family members and informal caregivers on resident quality of life
  • understanding and reducing the impact of ageism on resident health and wellbeing
  • reducing isolation and loneliness and the negative impact on resident health and wellbeing
  • addressing racial, ethnic, gender or income disparities in care quality or health outcomes
  • enhancing understanding of the specialized care needs of resident populations with developmental disabilities or with serious mental illness

Grantees may use this award to augment funding for a project already funded through another grant.
