Assisted Living

Assisted living facilities have the luxury of a sense of community as well as individualized assistance. Assisted living facilities commonly offer help with transportation and appointments, supervision of care, and support with the activities of daily life. Under certain circumstances, facilities may provide respite, "aging in place", or dementia care. The state of Wisconsin maintains a number of provisions associated with this kind of facility. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Bureau of Assisted Living, Division of Quality Assurance, regulates community-based residential facilities (CBRFs) certifies this type of facility. This facility type has a number of provisions pertaining to medication assistance. These provisions include If the medication administration is supervised by a licensed healthcare professional, the facility must ensure that these individuals coordinate the medication administration process and system, when medication administration is not supervised by an RN, practitioner, or pharmacist, the CBRF must arrange for a pharmacist to package and label a resident's prescription medications in unit dose, and Residents may self-administer medications if they are capable. 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 initial comprehensive mental and physical assessment, reassessments must be conducted at least annually, and when residents have a change in needs, abilities, or condition, the plan must specify which program services will be provided to meet the resident's needs as identified by the assessment and the frequency with which each service will be provided, and facility must develop a temporary service plan to meet immediate needs. There must be one toilet for every 1 residents and one bath or shower for every 1 residents. Public assistance is available through The Elderly and Physically Disabled 1915(c) Waiver program, the Community Options 1915(c) Waiver program, and the Medicaid managed care 1915(b)(c) Family Care Waiver program for the aged and physically disabled. Staff members receive education in a number of areas. These include: first-aid, provision of personal care, challenging behaviors, and resident rights. This type of facility is required to offer a number of services. These include independent living skills, activity programming for persons with dementia, leisure time activities, and including personal care. This facility has a number of provisions concerning food and diet which include these meals must meet the recommended dietary allowances based on current dietary guidelines for Americans, facilities must provide at least three nutritious meals a day and a nutritious snack, these meals must meet residents’ special dietary needs, and therapeutic diets must be provided if ordered by a physician.
