When selecting a facility for an older family member or friend, it is important to have complete information. Thanks to Sen. Pat Vance, family and friends can clearly understand the different options available through tough, but fair licensing requirements for assisted living facilities.
The Assisted Living Facility Law Sen. Vance authored defined assisted living residences. Prior to enactment of the law, many personal care homes referred to themselves as assisted living facilities, but the care and services offered varied greatly. The law set minimum regulations so it is easier to understand what care can and cannot be offered in such facilities.
