Assisted Living

An assisted living facility is an organized living community which offers supervision, aid, and support to healthy persons who are not in need of skilled nursing care. Assisted living facilities usually provide aid with transit and appointments, supervision of care, and outings for recreational activity. Under certain circumstances, facilities may provide Alzheimer's care, hospice, or respite. In Delaware, the annual median cost for an assisted living facility is around $72,414 . The state of Delaware has specific rules associated with this kind of facility. The Delaware Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS), Division of Long Term Care Residents Protection licenses this facility type. This type of facility is required to offer a number of services. These include assistance with activities of daily living, aundry and housekeeping, opportunities for social interaction, and access to appropriate health care and social services. Public assistance is available through The Delaware Diamond State Health Plan Plus. Before a resident is accepted, they must go through a service plan screening to assure their needs are going to be met. This screening includes a number of areas of interest such as The UAI collects information about the resident's mental and physical status, The UAI collects information about the residents psychosocial needs, RN conducts a Uniform Assessment Instrument (UAI) with the resident, and facilities must develop a service agreement with each resident.
