Assisted Living

Assisted living facilities provide apartment-style housing and social interaction as well as individualized help. The services provided often involve aid with activities of daily living. Inhabitants may be kept under monitoring and assessment. Under certain circumstances, facilities may offer continuing care, Alzheimer's care, or nursing care. The state of South Carolina maintains specific rules associated with this type of facility. The Board of Health and Environmental Control, Division of Health Licensing certifies this facility type. Before a resident is accepted, they must go through a service plan screening to ensure their needs are going to be met. This screening includes a number of areas of interest such as dietary needs, assistance with ADLs for the resident, requirements and arrangements for visits by or to physicians or other authorized health providers, and assessing the extent of residents’ problems and needs. Public assistance is available through Medicaid State Plan.. Staff members receive education in a number of subjects. These include: occupational safety and health administration standards regarding blood-borne pathogens, Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for designated staff members/volunteers to ensure that there is a certified staff member/volunteer present whenever residents are in the facility, use of restraints , and procedures for checking and recording vital signs.
