LONG-TERM CARE OMBUDSMAN PROGRAM ASSISTED LIVING

What is An Assisted Living Facility?

Title 310. Oklahoma State Department of Health

Chapter 663. Continuum of Care and Assisted Living

Assisted living means any home or establishment offering, coordinating or providing services to two or more persons who: are domiciled therein; are unrelated to the operator; by choice or functional impairments, need assistance with personal care or nursing supervision; may need intermittent or unscheduled nursing care; may need medication assistance; and may need assistance with the transfer and/ambulation as defined in Section 310:663-1-2 of the Oklahoma statutes. {63:1-890.1.1}

Costs vary with the residence, unit size, and the types of services needed by the residents. Medicaid does not cover costs of assisted living facilities. Also, pay close attention to contracts or agreements as they differ from facility to facility.
