When choosing assisted living care, consumers are reliant on their state’s regulatory agencies to provide information about communities and their backgrounds. Public access to assisted living records varies greatly state by state. Here is a snapshot of the level of transparency in Delaware:
- Delaware has inspections and violations information online but the online database has not been updated since 2015
- Delaware conducts inspections of communities on at least an annual basis.
HOW TO ACCESS RECORDS
- Visit Delaware’s Licensed and Certified Long Term Care Facilities to verify a community is licensed.
- Visit the Survey Reports site for inspections results. For recent inspections, contact the Delaware Division of Long Term Care Residents Protection.
- Contact the Aging and Disablity Resource Center for questions or additional information about providers.
