News and case studies about assisted living

Assisted Living/CCRC Update

The LeadingAge members who offer assisted living are often a part of a continuing care retirement community but many are free standing. Assisted living is state regulated and all 50 states have some form of regulation or licensure category for assisted living, although it may not be called by that name. State regulations vary on who can be admitted and reside in assisted living. 

Assisted living is primarily private pay, although 41 states currently have a Medicaid Waiver/Medicaid State Plan for a limited amount of residents.

LeadingAge produces a newsletter for assisted living and CCRC members that comes out six times a year.

Presently, while pharmaceutical hazardous waste in long-term care facilities is regulated by the agency, it is subject to the agency’s less-stringent household hazardous waste standard.
