The Division of Licensing Services, Office of Assisted Living Licensing regulates and monitors Assisted Living Facilities in Arizona. Most facilities are inspected once a year, and as needed to ensure compliance and investigate complaints. If a facility receives a deficiency-free relicensing survey, it may receive a two-year license. With the exception of initial licensing visits, all visits are unannounced.

Arizona defines an assisted living facility is a residential care institution that provides or contracts to provide supervisory care, personal care, or directed care on a continuing basis.

The Arizona Department of Health Services maintains a public file for all licensed health and child care institutions, including assisted living facilities. The files contain records of inspections, complaints, and licensing history. The files are available for public viewing from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Different facilities provide different types of care in a variety of settings; some have only five or six residents in a single family home, others are apartment settings with hundreds of residents. Regardless of size and setting, all assisted living facilities provide certain basic services. The key is to match the setting to the resident's needs and preferences.

It's a good idea to learn as much as possible about all the assisted living options that are available in your area. They could be called Residential Living Facilities, Adult Foster Homes, or Home Care Centers in your location. Everything you read and each facility you visit will help you to get closer to determining your own need. There are adult family homes, retirement communities, board and care homes, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities and other options. Learning about the costs of assisted living and how to cover those costs is also very important. With all these options, and maybe because there are so many choices, it can be overwhelming. There's nothing wrong with getting help.
