Upon admission to an assisted living facility, a resident, their representative, and the facility operator must develop an individualized service plan after consulting with the resident’s physician. The home care services agency may also participate in the plan creation unless the resident’s physician determines that they do not need such services. 


The plan must identify the services the resident will receive by considering their “medical, nutritional, rehabilitation, functional, [and] cognitive” needs, state when the resident will receive the services, and identify the service provider. 


The facility and the resident must revise the plan to account for changes in the resident’s needs at least every six month. If necessary, the resident’s physician may be consulted when amending the plan.
