Assisted living is a generic term that includes Community Based Residential Facilities (CBRFs) and Residential Care apartment Complexes (RCACs). CBRFs are state licensed group homes for five or more unrelated adults. Residential Care Apartment Complexes (RCACs) are registered with the State and consist of separate apartments with kitchen, bathroom and living areas. The apartments can range from an efficiency-style apartment to a full-scale two bedroom or more apartment.
Public funding may be used to pay for some services. Check with individual Assisted Living facilities to see if they have a contract with public funding entities. Individuals may also private pay for services.
