National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL)
From March 2017 through April 2017, HMA reviewed each state and the District of Columbia’s assisted living licensing regulations and statutes, relying on the resources published on state licensure agency web pages. According to the NCAL’s 2018 edition of “Assisted Living State Regulatory Review,” assisted living regulations, statutes, and policies in 29 states were updated between June 2017 and June 2018. The report found that the most common changes to state regulations were in the area of staffing, such as additional training requirements and expanded background check requirements.
