With different types of care, laws, regulations, staffing requirements, and financial assistance, Assisted Living is inevitably different from state to state. In order to help older adults navigate through all the differences, the Assisted Living Research Institute created an in-depth and comprehensive guide for every single state in the U.S. In addition to insights from experts and older adults living in assisted living communities from each state, the institute gathered all the available data, research, and news with the intention to provide seniors with all the knowledge they need to know about assisted living in their state.

PILOTS stands for: Published International Literature on Traumatic Stress.
The Published International Literature on Traumatic Stress (PILOTS) Database is an electronic index to the worldwide literature on PTSD and other mental health consequences of exposure to traumatic events.

It attempts to include all publications relevant to PTSD and other forms of traumatic stress, whatever their origin without disciplinary, linguistic, or geographic limitations.
