Wellness Readiness Survey

The first of its kind in North America and sponsored by Precor, the survey polled 721 respondents working in organizations connected to (or members of) the ICAA -- executive, managerial staff and general employees of companies serving the older adult market. Companies surveyed included organizations with programs and facilities for older adults who live independently or need some assistance.

They were asked about their lifestyle/wellness services, such as arts and cultural programs, intellectual and social opportunities, physical activities and health education.

Preliminary results of the survey were publicized in April of 2014. Now the findings are available in full detail in ICAA's 52-page report: ICAA Wellness Readiness Survey 2014 and its companion 16-page publication: Appendix on Staffing and Participation.
