Assisted Living

An assisted living facility is an organized living community which offers care, support, and supervision to self-sufficient individuals who are not in need of skilled nursing care. The services offered often include support with ADLs. Occupants may be kept under observation and assessment. In some situations, facilities may offer Alzheimer's care, nursing care, or continuing care. In Washington, the annual median cost for an assisted living facility is around $66,000 . Washington has specific regulations associated with this kind of facility. The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), Aging and Long-Term Support Administration (Department) governs this facility type. Staff members receive education in a number of areas. These areas include specialty training, orientation (2 hours), HIV/AIDS, and nurse delegation and core diabetes. 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 activities and service preferences, an initial comprehensive exam including medical history , level of personal care needs, and preferences regarding other issues important to the resident applicant. This type of facility is required to offer a number of services. These include basic personal care services, promote each resident's health, safety, and well-being consistent with the resident negotiated care plan, general responsibility for each resident, and assistance with ADLs.
