 As part of ProPublica’s ongoing reporting into the assisted living industry, we know that a vital perspective will come from the people who made those facilities run. If you’ve worked at an assisted living facility, you can help our investigation by sharing your expertise, and telling us what you think we should investigate. We promise we’ll keep your information confidential.

 If you have concerns sharing your story here, please feel free to contact reporter A.C. Thompson at A.C.Thompson@propublica.org
