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).
Type A facilities may only accept residents who are able to evacuate the premises unassisted, are able to follow directions under emergency conditions and do not require routine attendance during nighttime sleeping hours.
Type B facilities may accept residents who do not qualify for a Type A facility but only if these residents are not permanently bedfast.
Type C facilities are 4-bed facilities that meet the minimum standards and rules for enrollment in the DADS Adult Foster Care home program.
DADS inspects and regulates assisted living facilities. The department conducts routine inspections of licensed facilities and also conducts complaint investigations in these facilities.
