In select cases, communities may provide skilled nursing, respite, or continuing care. In Massachusetts, the annual median cost for an assisted living community is around $67,680 . The state of Massachusetts maintains specific regulations related to this type of community. The Executive Office of Elder Affairs licenses this community type. Staff are required to obtain education in a variety of areas. These include: emergency policies and procedures, elder abuse and neglect, communication skills, and financial exploitation. This type of community is required to offer a number of services. These include assistance with activities of daily living , assistance with instrumental activities of daily living, timely assistance with urgent or emergency needs, and management of self-administered prescription or over-the-counter medications. Before a resident is accepted, they must go through a service plan screening to guarantee their needs are going to be met.
