The importance of the quality of care
Posted .October 02, 2015

When searching for an assisted living facility, it’s important to find out as much as you can about the regulations governing these facilities in your loved one’s area. At present, no federal regulation policy exists for assisted living facilities, but as the need for assisted living grows at an increasingly rapid rate, many states are hurrying to create regulatory systems. Currently, approximately two out of every five states have assisted living licensure regulations in place, one out of every five states has drafted or revised assisted living regulations, and 20 percent of states have begun studying assisted living.

It is also important to check the qualifications of the administrator as well as the service providers for an assisted living facility. When evaluating the residence administrator, look for:

  • An adequate education
  • Experience in the field
  • Ongoing training to meet residents’ health and psycho-social needs
  • Management ability that meets those required by the setting

In general, the number and type of staff employed in an assisted living facility will depend on the size of the facility, the services offered, and any special requirements of the residents. Typically, a staff will include activity directors, administrators, certified nurse assistants, food service managers, health/wellness directors, maintenance personnel, nurses, and personal care attendants, as well as contracted services from beauticians, dietitians, nutritionists, physical therapists, and physicians. When evaluating the care staff, look for:

  • A sufficient number to meet the 24-hour scheduled needs of the residents
  • A sufficient number to meet any unscheduled needs that might arise
  • A sufficient number to meet any needs the care recipients’ families might have
  • Individuals with the education, skills, and ongoing training to serve residents’ needs
