Assisted Living

Assisted living communities have the luxury of apartment style housing and social interaction as well as individual support. Assisted living communities often provide supervision of care, outings for leisurely activity, and aid with appointments and transportation. In certain instances, communities may offer skilled nursing, hospice, or respite. In Florida, the annual median cost for an assisted living community is around 42,000. The state of Florida has specific statutes associated with this kind of community. The Bureau of Health community Regulation supervises this community type. The minimum number of residents for this community type is 1. There must be one bath or shower for every 1 residents and one toilet for every 1 residents. This type of community is required to have a staff member on duty 24 hours a day. Before a resident is accepted, they must go through a service plan screening to guarantee their needs are going to be met. This screening includes a number of areas of interest such as monthly nursing assessment of resident as ordered by physician , medical examination report, community must document any substantial changes in a resident's status which may necessitate relocation to a more specialized community , and communities must document such assessment.
