Woman surveying elderly continuing care patient


The HQCA conducts surveys with family members and residents in long term care and designated supportive living facilities across Alberta. The information we collect and analyze is shared with each facility, Alberta Health Services, and the government to help inform future improvements.

In 2022, for the first time, we are conducting our long term care and designated supportive living resident and family experience surveys at the same time, as part of the new HQCA’s Facility-based Continuing Care Survey. We will release the results in late 2023.
