Can a resident continue to live in Assisted Living when they need additional services and care?
You should carefully question any Assisted Living provider that tells you a resident can live at the community forever, even if their health care needs increase. The community may be unable to adequately meet the resident’s needs for the rest of his or her life, and regulations may limit the community’s ability to do so. Each state in which Five Star operates regulates the level of services we can provide in an Assisted Living community. If a resident develops needs that require services beyond those allowed by state regulations, we will assist the resident and family in finding the best alternative setting to address the resident’s needs.
