Residential care facilities provide activities, housekeeping, laundry, meals and snacks, medication assistance and coordination of health care services. They provide special dietary needs for their residents with diabetes and other special dietary needs.
Assessments prior to admission are completed on all residents prior to move in date. The purpose of this assessment is to determine if the facility can adequately meet the needs of the individual. Within the first two weeks of move-in, a full evaluation is performed and a service plan is created.
The state of Washington requires that the care staff be sufficient in number to meet the needs of the residents. In addition, staff must be trained and able to implement any disaster or fire plans as needed, maintain a hazard-free environment, and provide the services needed by the residents under their care. The administrator may not be a resident of the home, must be at least 21 years old, and must have a combination of experience, education and training.
Special requirements must be met before an assisted living facility can have a unit designated to accept residents with dementia or Alzheimer's. All staff work with Alzheimer's residents must have specific training and independent activities must be offered.
