FAQs for Providers

Frequently Asked Questions/Answers and Recommended Best Practices for Kentucky Assisted Living Communities

Preamble:  The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) in the document are provided to help KSLA Provider Members 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).  The document should only be used as a supplement to the statutory and regulatory language.

The statutes and regulation referenced in the document 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.
