Assisted Living in New York DefinedAssisted living residences in New York are required to provide housing, 24-hour monitoring, daily meals and personal care services to five or more adult residents. However, depending on the needs of the residents and the level of service offered, the State classifies assisted living residences in these three ways:
- Basic Assisted Living Residence (ALR) – ALRs are for seniors who are medically stable and relatively independent, but need some assistance with the activities of daily living such as bathing, toileting, dressing or eating.
- Enhanced Assisted Living Residence (EALR) – Enhanced residences were designed for seniors with more limiting physical conditions, such as severe arthritis, who require more intensive assistance with the activities of daily living such as walking or transferring in and out of bed.
- Special Needs Assisted Living Residence (SNALR) – Special needs residences are certified to care for adults with conditions such as Alzheimer’s or dementia. SNALRs develop individualized plans of care tailored to the unique needs of each resident.
