FAQs for Providers

Frequently asked questions/answers & recommended best practices for Kentucky assisted living communities.

Preamble:  The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) in this document are provided to help you understand and interpret specific issues related to applicable state/federal requirements, primarily KRS 194A.700-729 (Assisted Living Communities) and 910 KAR 1:240 (Certification of Assisted Living Communities).  This document should only be used as a supplement to the statutory and regulatory language.

The statutes and regulation referenced are only intended to reflect KSLA’s general understanding and, therefore, may indicate the outer parameters of what is permissible, and should not be relied upon as legal advice.  A particular act permitted under statute or regulation may or may not be the most appropriate course of action or best practice in light of all relevant circumstances and factors for a given assisted living community (ALC) in Kentucky.  KSLA’s recommended best practices do attempt to take some circumstances and factors into consideration, including an ALC’s mission, clients’ needs, staff and policies.  For more information, please contact the KSLA Office, (toll-free) (502) 938-5102.
