Assisted Living Centers and Abuse
Assisted living centers offer a moderate level of care because their residents generally are thought to be more independent and capable of caring for themselves than are residents in nursing homes. Assisted living facilities do not provide skilled nursing care and, although they may claim to provide constant supervision, they often leave residents unsupervised for extended periods of time. This can lead to significant injuries for residents.
Residents in assisted living centers typically are private pay, which means the facility receives more money from the resident than Medicare or Medicaid/AHCCCS/ALTCS would pay for the same services. This gives assisted living centers a substantial incentive to keep residents living at the facility. Sadly, this term of residency often continues after an elderly person’s condition has deteriorated to the point that he or she needs more serious care from a nursing home.
