Description

Move on Down the Road - Regulation, or Lack Thereof, in Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs), Assisted Living Residences and Nursing Homes

“There come a time in everybody’s life when you just gotta move on down the road…”

  • What does aging in place mean?

  • What are the options along the continuum between a private home and a nursing facility?

  • What laws apply to which entities?

  • When should a case be referred to a nursing home litigator?

While a non-institutionalized setting is generally the preference, there often comes a time when our elderly or disabled clients choose or need to move. Unfortunately, it’s generally not so easy to “ease on down the road.” Moving into an institutionalized setting is difficult enough emotionally and physically, without dealing with the various complexities of regulation or non-regulation. Attend this panel discussion, and you’ll learn about the important issues you need to understand in order to best advise your clients.

Our panel will discuss:

  • Which agencies regulate which entities.

  • What protections exist for clients in CCRCs, Assisted Living Residences, and Nursing Homes.

  • Current gaps in regulations and MassNAELA’s response:

    • Spoiler Alert: 3 Bills Proposed:

      • Consumer Protections for Assisted Living Residences;

      • CCRC Fee Disclosure Agreements; and

      • CCRC Commission.

  • Pending litigation challenging the applicability of Landlord/Tenant law in Assisted Living Residences.

  • How to document nursing home litigation cases.
