Compendium of Residential Care and Assisted Living Regulations and Policy: 2015 Edition

Publication Date
Jun 14, 2015
Residential care settings are an important option for older adults and people with disabilities who require long-term services and supports. They provide a community-based living alternative to individuals who might otherwise require nursing home care and those who do not need this level of care but are unable to continue living in their own or a relative’s home. Residential care settings are licensed and regulated at the state level, and all states have at least one category of residential care. The purpose of this Compendium is to summarize and compare states’ residential care setting regulations.
