Alzheimer's Disease or Related Disorders Special Care Disclosure Form, ODH Form 613 (65K) (Revised 06/24/2015)
Nursing facilities may be licensed as a specialized facility. This means that they provide inpatient long-term care services on a twenty-four-hour basis to a limited category of persons requiring such services. There are less than five nursing facilities that are licensed as specialized facilities for the care of residents with Alzheimer's and related dementias.
Directory of Facilities with Special Care Units or Programs for persons with Alzheimer's disease or related disorders [COMING SOON]
Both Assisted Living Centers and Nursing facilities must file a disclosure if they advertise, market, or otherwise promote their facility as providing care or treatment to persons with Alzheimer's disease or related disorders in a special unit or under a special program. These are colloquially called memory care centers but there is no legal definition for these facilities. A memory care center may be in an assisted living center or a nursing home. It may be a portion of the facility or the entire facility.
Our facility directories identify those facilities that have submitted disclosures to offer care or treatment as a special care provider. You can find those directories here: Directory of Long Term Care Facilities. Beginning in the first quarter of calendar year 2020, in the table below we will be posting the list of facilities with links to their submitted disclosure form.
