State Assisted Living Inspection and Licensing

Did you know that your state government regularly inspects, licenses and investigates complaints against long-term care facilities? This allows authorities, residents and the public to be informed of any incidents, abuse or other issues within senior living communities.

What causes this confusion is that there is no national standard as to what communities are called or how they are licensed. Even the term long-term care can be confusing. Long-term care could mean assisted living and nursing homes in one state while another state considers long-term care only applicable to nursing homes. Read more about licensing
