Care Facilities (also known as board and care homes, assisted living
facilities, homes for the elderly) are licensed by the Department of
Social Services to provide a non-medical level of care to elderly residents
60 years old and older. Facility size may vary from a small 6-bed
"home" to over 300-bed multi-story units. Medicare and
Medicaid do not provide payment toward the care of residents.
Some residents may qualify for SSI benefits (Social Security Supplemental
Income) which contributes to their monthly income and assists them in
paying the state assigned "rent rate." Otherwise, most
of our residents pay through private funds.
care staff are trained in first aid procedures and continue to attend
in-services in the care and supervision of the elderly. At this
point, we are not required by law to employ licensed staff. However,
more and more facilities are hiring licensed vocational nurses to supervise
and dispense medication, as regulations are becoming very stringent
in this area. Dietary staff follow menus designed and developed
by a registered dietitian. Modified or special diets are also
provided as ordered by residents' physicians. The facility employs
an administrator trained and licensed by the Department of Social Services
to oversee the daily operation of the facility.
