Assisted living programs provide services for people with cognitive and/or age-related disabilities. They can operate alongside an residential adult care facility. The operator must organize all resident services. These include residential help, case management, and personal care. Operators cannot provide nursing or medical services.
New laws are in effect to better govern adult homes. Operators should review them as soon as possible.
