Assisted Living

An assisted living facility is an organized living community which administers care, support, and supervision to independent individuals who are not in need of skilled nursing care. Assisted living facilities frequently provide care supervision, aid with the activities of daily life, and aid with transit and appointments. Under certain circumstances, facilities may provide "aging in place", dementia care, or respite. In Washington, the annual median cost for an assisted living facility is around $66,000 . The state of Washington has a number of provisions associated with this type of facility. The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), Aging and Long-Term Support Administration (Department) regulates this facility type. This type of facility is required to offer a number of services. These include promote each resident's health, safety, and well-being consistent with the resident negotiated care plan, facilities choose to provide certain health support services, general responsibility for each resident, and basic personal care services. Staff are required to obtain training in a number of areas. These include: HIV/AIDS, First-aid and CPR, continuing education, and safety training (3 hours). There must be one toilet for every 1 residents and one bath or shower for every 1 residents. There is a maximum occupancy of 2 residents per room. This facility type has a number of provisions pertaining to medication assistance. These provisions include resident self-administration of medication, medication administration, and medication administration provided through nurse delegation. This facility has a number of provisions concerning food and diet which include practitioner, not exceeding more than 14 hours between the evening meal and breakfast , a minimum of three meals a day at regular intervals, and nourishing and palatable meals adjusted to meet individual preferences to the extent reasonably possible. Public assistance is available through Medicaid 1915(c) Waiver program--Community Options Program Entry System (COPES). Before a resident is accepted, they must go through a service plan screening to assure their needs are going to be met. This screening includes a number of areas of interest such as an initial comprehensive exam including medical history , significant known behaviors or symptoms that may cause concern or require special care, preferences regarding other issues important to the resident applicant, and mental illness.
