Depression is a common, disabling, and underrecognized problem among older adults in assisted living (AL) settings. The purpose of this study was to evaluate stakeholder perceptions of using a blended model of depression care that combines essential features of evidence-based collaborative care and older adult outreach for use in AL settings. A descriptive mixed-methods design was used to assess perceptions of the three main components of the depression model: onsite depression care management, staff development activities, and AL nurses as staff resources and liaisons to primary care providers. Quantitative and narrative responses were consistently positive and supportive of depression care approaches. Potential barriers included time constraints for staff and costs for residents. These data provide strong support for further evaluation of the blended depression model. Staff development activities may be implemented independent of the model to enhance depression recognition, assessment, and daily care approaches in AL.
