Assisted Living

An assisted living community is a residential community which offers supervision, support, and care to self-sufficient individuals who do not need skilled nursing care. Assisted living communities commonly provide supervision of care, outings for social activity, and assistance with appointments and transportation. In certain situations, communities may provide "aging in place", nursing care, or hospice. The state of Texas maintains specific regulations associated with this type of community. The Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) licenses several types of assisted living communities regulates this type of community. Before a resident is accepted, they must go through a service plan screening to make sure their needs are going to be met. This screening includes a number of areas of interest such as interviews, and home visits, a comprehensive assessment , and must address the residents individual needs, preferences, and strengths. This community type has a number of provisions pertaining to medication assistance. These provisions include listing the medication taken on a resident's medication profile record, reminders to take medications at the prescribed time, and supervision of a resident's medication regimen. Staff must receive training in a number of areas. These areas include basic emergency first-aid, community resources, resident characteristics (including dementia), and resident and provider rights and responsibilities.
