Assisted Living

Assisted living facilities provide organized social events and apartment style housing as well as individualized help. The services provided often involve support with activities of daily living. Residents may be kept under monitoring and evaluation. In select situations, facilities may offer dementia care, respite, or skilled nursing. In Washington, the annual median cost for an assisted living facility is around $66,000 . Washington has specific rules 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 type of facility. 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 level of personal care needs, significant known behaviors or symptoms that may cause concern or require special care, mental illness, and preferences regarding other issues important to the resident applicant. Public assistance is available through Medicaid 1915(c) Waiver program--Community Options Program Entry System (COPES).This facility type has a number of provisions pertaining to medication assistance.
