How QRS Evaluates Assisted Living Facilities

Overview:

Assisted Living Facilities are establishments that furnish food and shelter to four or more persons, unrelated to the owner, and provide assisted living services, minor treatment under the direction and supervision of a physician, or services that meet some need beyond basic provision of food, shelter, and laundry. In QRS such facilities are designated as Type A, Type B, and Type C (also called Adult Foster Care facilities).

DADS inspects and regulates assisted living facilities. The department conducts routine inspections of licensed facilities and also conducts complaint investigations in these facilities.

Caution: This web site does not reflect recommendations of any specific provider by DADS. It is simply a tool that you can use to help you make a selection. Because QRS shows information from a limited time period and is updated only once each month, it may not include some important events that are either older or more recent. QRS rating systems are developed in collaboration with long term care providers and consumer advocates and may include some self-declared and unverified information.

DADS strongly encourages you to visit any provider that you consider, to talk with its clients or client ombudsman at 1-800-252-2412, and to contact the DADS Consumer Information Hotline at 1-800-458-9858 to obtain the most recent information concerning that provider.
