How good is assisted living? To a great extent, it depends on what state you’re in, as assisted living standards are dependent upon state law. This presentation included the results of a 12-state study on assisted living laws.
Also, hear from advocates engaged in state efforts to improve assisted living through the legislative process – California, where the RCFE Reform Act of 2014 is moving through the state legislature; and Connecticut, which has revamped its assisted living regulations to improve resident health and safety. The presentation also will announce a new California-focused reform project.
