The Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH) has published final regulations and application materials governing the new licensure category for Assisted Living Communities (ALC). As explained in our previous article, available by clicking here, the Assisted Living Licensure category was established by the passage of the Georgia General Assembly’s Senate Bill 178 in 2011. An ALC is a personal care home with a minimum of 25 beds that applies for a license to provide additional services such as administration of medications and retention of certain non-ambulatory residents. These additional services may allow residents to remain in place for a longer period of time.
