Assisted Living

Assisted living communities provide healthcare, recreational activities, and oversight to people who are about 65 years old. The services provided often involve help with the activities of daily life. Occupants may be kept under observation and evaluation. Under certain circumstances, communities may provide "aging in place", hospice, or respite. In Florida, the annual median cost for an assisted living community is around 42,000. Florida maintains specific regulations associated with this kind of community. The Bureau of Health community Regulation regulates this community type. This type of community is required to offer a number of services. These include assistance with self-administration of medications, nursing services, personal care services, and assistance with activities of daily living . Public assistance is available through 1915(b)(c) MLTC program. Staff must receive education in a number of subjects.
