ASSISTED LIVING

The Assisted Living Federation of America defines an Assisted Living residence as a special combination of housing, personalized supportive services and health care designed to meet the needs -- both scheduled and unscheduled -- of those who need help with activities of daily living (ALFA).

There are three types of Assisted Living facilities:

Type A

  • Resident must be physically and mentally capable of evacuating the residence unassisted. This may include the mobile, non-ambulatory person, such as those who are in wheelchairs or electric carts and have the capacity to transfer themselves in an emergency.
  • Does not require routine attendance during nighttime sleeping hours.
  • Must be capable of following directions under emergency conditions.

Type B

  • May require staff assistance to evacuate.
  • May be incapable of following directions under emergency conditions.
  • May require attendance during nighttime sleeping hours.
  • May not be permanently bedfast but may require assistance in transferring to and from wheelchair.

Type C

  • A four-bed facility which meets the minimum standards and program rules for enrollment with the Texas Department of Human Services as an adult foster care facility and is so enrolled on the effective date of this rule will be deemed licensed as a Type C facility without having to apply for an assisted living facility license.
