Across the country, older adults with significant care needs are entering and aging into assisted living facilities. Over a third of assisted living residents receive assistance with three more activities of daily living, and half of all residents have at least two chronic conditions. Over 40% of assisted living residents live with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias (National Center for Health Statistics, 2014).As older adults age in place, what are states and assisted living facilities doing to meet resident’s health care needs? What is the role of nurses? Of hospice agencies? Of medication assistants and other unlicensed staff members?
This webinar presented an overview of state approaches to meet resident health care needs. The webinar discussed current state laws as well as trends within assisted living.
