Let our comprehensive guide to Las Vegas assisted living help you. With more than 20 years of senior living experience and 20 local communities in the Las Vegas Strip area, this guide can help you find a solution to your senior living needs. Between our scoring system and the feedback we’ve received from real residents and their families, we have classified these assisted living facilities by the services and features that are most important to seniors. In this guide, you’ll learn about local assisted living options, costs, ways to pay, and a detailed explanation of the state of Nevada’s assisted living regulations.

How do we score Las Vegas, Nevada, assisted living facilities?

Our goal is to help you find high-quality assisted living facilities that fit your needs. Using our 20+ years of experience in senior living, we developed a proprietary rating system based on the following:

  • Recent, high-quality reviews.We take into account reviews from the past two years. Then, we look for the facilities people prefer. Communities that have mostly positive ratings in the past two years are prioritized over facilities that have low or no reviews in the past two years. Reviews also help us understand what matters most to families like yours and how you rate facilities based on subcategories like meals and dining, staff, and cleanliness. 
  • Facility transparency. Communities that have robust information are prioritized over facilities that don’t offer the same level of transparency.
  • Location. Facility options vary based on proximity to your desired location.

Seniors can expect assisted living costs to vary based on the care level provided, floor plan, amenities, services, and the location. Typically, the cost includes room and board, three meals a day, activity programming, and personal care services. The cost sometimes also includes housekeeping, specific amenities, transportation to appointments, and utilities. However, some assisted living communities offer these services at an extra cost.

Compared to the national monthly median assisted living cost of $4,500, assisted living facilities in Las Vegas are less expensive.[01]

Understand Nevada laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

Learning about Nevada’s assisted living regulations is an important step to make when choosing a community. The information below will help you find licensed assisted living facilities in Nevada that adhere to local laws and can meet you or your loved one’s needs.  

Licensing and grading system

Assisted living facilities in Nevada must be licensed under the category of “Residential Facilities for Groups” by the Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance (HCQC) in order to provide qualified care and assistance to seniors. This helpful fact sheet on Residential Facilities for Groups outlines the standards of these assisted living communities in Nevada, as defined by the HCQC.  

Nevada’s Division of Public and Behavioral Health ranks residential facilities with an inspection-based grading system. During the inspections, deficiencies such as safety and staffing concerns are noted.   

  • An assisted living facility with an “A” grade has either minimal or no deficiencies.  
  • Those with a “B” grade have multiple deficiencies or issues with their administration that may cause harm to residents if left unaddressed.  
  • To earn a “C” or “D” grade, an assisted living facility must have several issues with their administration, deficiencies that have already caused harm to its residents, or both. After receiving a “C” or “D” grade, the facility must be re-inspected until it receives an “A” or “B” grade.  

To make sure each assisted living facility in Nevada complies with each of these regulations, inspections are done by the Health Division of the HCQC before the facility is officially licensed, when there’s a complaint about the facility, and during the annual licensed term. These assisted living inspection reports and licensing information are available to the public via Nevada’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Provider Search Form. To navigate this search form, select “Health Facilities” under the Business Unit search criteria, select “Residential Facility for Groups” under the Credential Type criteria, then enter the name and the address of the facility which you would like to look up. 

Residential support requirements

Residential facilities for seniors must function in a way that meets a senior’s evolving needs — so that the need for moving to another care facility is minimized. These facilities are also required to foster their residents’ independence. Therefore, assisted living facilities in Nevada are not allowed to admit residents that are bedridden, require restraint, or require 24-hour skilled nursing care, unless the senior qualifies for HCQC-approved hospice care.[04]

Room requirements

Rooms in assisted living facilities must be at least 80 square feet for a private room, and there must be at least 60 square feet of floor space per resident in a shared room. Shared rooms can house a maximum of three residents.[02]

Caregiving staff

Nevada assisted living facilities with over 20 residents need at least one employee on site who is awake at all times, but there are no required staff ratios. Assisted living caregiving staff must be at least 18 years old and have the ability to complete CPR and first aid. They must also have at least 4 hours of other care-related training. If an assisted living facility also provides memory care, each employee must receive and complete a minimum of 8 hours of training for general and emergency care related to Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.[02]

COVID-19 regulations for Las Vegas, Nevada, assisted living facilities

Nevada’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) recommends that assisted living facilities have a COVID-19 prevention and control plan. The DHHS recognizes that seniors in assisted living facilities face a higher risk of COVID-19 exposure due to close contact with other seniors. So they’ve provided guidance on disease control best practices for these facilities:

  • Quarantine residents for 14 days if there are suspected symptoms or a positive COVID-19 test result.
  • Communicate to residents and families that outdoor visits are preferred.
  • Continue group activities while adhering to hand-washing, mask-wearing, and social distancing practices.

At the state level, the mask mandate was lifted in the beginning of 2022. However, individual organizations and businesses are able to enforce their own mask policies. Nevada also added more COVID-19 testing locations.
