General Information

Board of Health Action
The Board of Health in 1998 adopted rules for the licensure of continuum of care facilities and assisted living centers. The rules most recently amended were effective June 25, 2007.

Background
The Continuum of Care and Assisted Living Act, which became law on May 20, 1997, authorized two new types of health care or residential settings – the continuum of care facility and the assisted living center. The continuum of care facility is capable of providing more services than are available in a typical nursing facility. The assisted living center offers a level of services between current nursing facilities and residential care homes.

Consumer Choice
Care plans and room setting can be adjusted to meet each resident’s needs and capabilities. As people age, they might not have to move when they start to need more care or assistance. The Consumer can choose a facility that offers services to meet current and future needs for personal care or skilled nursing care. Instead of being limited to current residential or nursing facility designs, consumers will be able to choose a living arrangement that meets their expectations for independence and privacy.

Provider Flexibility
Existing residential care and nursing facility providers may continue operating under their current licenses or may step up to meet requirements for the new license types. Continuum of care facilities and assisted living centers can adapt care plans and physical plants to the types of residents they intend to serve. Residents might not have to be discharged based on short-term variations in their health status or ability to ambulate. Services can be integrated, allowing facilities and centers to compete in the changing healthcare market place. Assisted living center licensure will be available to fill the gap between residential and nursing care.

In order to expedite the renewal process the forms have been revised, please note only use the preprint sent by the Department for renewal purposes.
