Assisted Living Regulations

Michigan defines an assisted living facility as an adult foster care program that provides supervised personal care facility that provides housing, meals and personalized care to adults, who are elderly, developmentally disabled, mentally ill, or physically handicapped, but who do not require continuous nursing care.

Michigan Assisted Living Facilities Scope of Care

An adult foster care facility must offer medication management, assistance with ADL's, social activities, or other services as directed in a resident's personal written assessment plan. A hospice or other home health agency may provide additional services to the resident in collaboration with the facility.

Michigan Assisted Living Admission Requirements

An adult foster care facility cannot admit any residents who need continuous nursing care, or whose needs cannot be met by the agency. A TB screening is required, as is a statement from the resident's physician. A resident is not a candidate to be admitted to or allowed to stay if he or she is a danger to themselves or others, or who damage facility property.

Michigan Assisted Living Care Plan Requirements

Upon admission, a written assessment and service plan are created. The service plan is created with the resident (and/or his or her legal representative) and identifies the resident's needs for activities, services, screening and maintenance. Service plans must be updated every year.

Michigan Assisted Living Medication Management Requirements

There are significant policies regarding the administration of medication in an adult foster care setting. Licensed staff are permitted to provide medication under a doctor's orders.

Michigan Assisted Living Facility Requirements

A single unit must offer 80 square feet of floor space, with multiple-occupancy rooms requiring 65 square feet of space per person. One sink, one toilet and one bathing facility are required for every eight residents, with at least one on each floor with resident units. The Michigan Department of Energy, Labor, and Economic Growth's Bureau of Fire Services regulated all safety features.

Michigan Assisted Living Staffing Requirements

Direct care staff are required to be on duty at all times to provider services as needed for residents. The minimum staff ratio is one direct care staff for every 12 residents. The administrator must have significant training and experience, and the staff must be at least 18, able to complete reports and follow written and oral instructions.

Michigan Assisted Living Medicaid Policy

The Medicaid state plan covers personal services only. However, the MI Choice Medicaid Waiver became effective in 2009, which pays for additional services beyond those that are customer in assisted living, but do not reach the level of continuous care.

Michigan Alzheimer's Care Requirements

If an assisted living facility operates a care unit for residents with Alzheimer's, then staff members who work in the unit must receive appropriate training and direct care staff must be present in the unit at all times.

Michigan Medicaid Coverage of Assisted Living and Related Services

The State of Michigan has the Choice Waiver Program that will pay for assisted living, also known as adult foster care or homes for the aged.

Under this waiver, eligible seniors who may otherwise require nursing home level care can receive that same care in their homes or in the community. In the past, the waiver was referred to as the Home and Community Based Services for the Elderly and Disabled (HCBS/ED).

Individuals are allowed the choice of electing the state to manage their care services or to self-direct their own care. Family members, such as the adult children, can be hired to provide care services and to be the paid caregivers for their aging parents. However, in most cases spouses and legal guardians are not eligible.

Services offered through the Choice Waiver Program are decided on a case-by-case basis and include:

- Adult day care in a group environment

- Chore services

- Counseling

- Disposable medical supplies and durable medical equipment

- Home delivered meals

- Environmental modifications to one's home or car to increase independence

- Homemaker services such as laundry, shopping assistance and housekeeping

- Personal care supervision

- Personal emergency response systems (PERS)

- Prepared and hot home delivered meals

- Private duty nursing on a short term basis

- Respite care to relieve the primary caregiver

- Training in a variety of independent living skills

- Transportation assistance for medical appointments

How to apply - it is accessible throughout Michigan and roughly 10,000 slots are available. So, there is a waiting list. Check with the local Michigan Area Agency on Aging to gain more information.
