What is a Residential Care Facility for the Elderly (RCFE )?

Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs) — sometimes called “Assisted Living” (e.g., 16+ beds) or “Board and Care” (e.g., 4 to 6 beds) — are non–medical facilities that provide room, meals, housekeeping, supervision, storage and distribution of medication, and personal care assistance with basic activities like hygiene, dressing, eating, bathing and transferring.

Any Age limit Requirements for the residents at the RCFE ?

RCFEs serve persons 60 years of age and older.

Are RCFE are considered Medical or Non-Medical facilities?

RCFEs are considered non-medical facilities and are not required to have nurses, certified nursing assistants or doctors on staff. This level of care and supervision is for people who are unable to live by themselves but who do not need 24hour nursing care.

Are Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly Regulated?

Yes. RCFEs must meet care and safety standards set by the State and are licensed and inspected by the Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing (CCL).

Who Pays the Bill for Residential Care for the Elderly or Assisted Living?

Most people must pay privately for care. Long-term care insurance only covers a very small percentage of people. There is very limited public funding through Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for RCFE residents who qualify for this program. Unfortunately, the SSI rate is so low that fewer and fewer facilities will accept persons on SSI.
