For Residents

You can help write the playbook on successful aging!

The Acts Center for Applied Research (ACAR) provides Acts residents with opportunities to give back by sharing their experience and wisdom

Across the nation and around the world, the Acts Center for Applied Research partners with universities, health care providers, government agencies, and other non-profits are eager to learn more about topics affecting the quality of life for older adults—topics ranging from brain wellness to social relationships. However, it can be time-consuming and costly for these organization to find individuals to participate in their studies. This is where ACAR—and you—come in.

Through ACAR, you have the chance to take part in one or more research initiatives, which frequently involve some form of survey response. Residents often find their experience with these studies to be interesting and stimulating.

For our residents, helping make this research successful is one more way of giving back. It’s a chance for a generation living longer and discovering a new chapter of life to share their experience and benefit others.

All the research ACAR takes part in is entirely safe, risk-free, and confidential. It does not involve drug trials.

If this sounds appealing, please complete our online information form. When we have a study that might be a good fit for you, we’ll be in touch and you can decide if you’d like to take part.

We hope you will sign up today!
