What is an Assisted Living Facility?

An Assisted Living Facility is basically a place for people to live when they are not able to live on their own, but they don’t need as much care as they would get in a Nursing Home.

In Indiana, an Assisted Living Facility is defined as:

  1. A facility that offers residential services for a fee and identifies itself as an assisted living facility; or offers residential services, including individual living units, dietary services, housekeeping services, transportation, and assistance with activities of daily living.
  2. Files an annual “Housing with Services Establishment Disclosure Form” with the Bureau of Aging and In-Home Services IC 12-10-15-10.

Are Assisted Living Facilities licensed by the State?

An Assisted Living Facility may or may not be licensed with the Indiana State Department of Health.
