Hi Everyone, this is David with Assisted Living Directory, and I would like to quickly show you how to use trusted, state of Utah-sponsored data to find assisted living statewide. I will also show you how Utah defines the different types of assisted living facilities.
So, getting right into it, the State of Utah’s Health Facility Licensing, Certification, and Resident Assessment site has an excellent Health Facility Information tool, that has several highly useful features.
First, there is a simple, but helpful .pdf document that describes the different types of senior care facilities in Utah, and how they are defined. For assisted living, there are:
Assisted Living Facility Type I and Assisted Living Facility Type II.
Assisted Living Facility Type I allows that a resident lives in a licensed facility that provides safe and clean living accommodations and three meals a day. Resident requires minimal assistance with the Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s), as well as several other criteria that I have displayed here.
Assisted Living Facility Type II allows residents to age in place in a licensed facility, and also has it’s own set of criteria, and guidelines that I have displayed here. You may pause the video at any point to examine these definitions for each type of assisted living and other health facilities in Utah.
The next tool I would like to quickly show you is the facility listing data provided by the State of Utah. Uses may search listings for facilities alphabetically, or by county, and then by Facility Type.
For this example, I will choose Wasatch County, and then Assisted Living Type II, and then view the information about the facility. Information provided includes the type of facility, address and phone number, county, number of licensed beds, and when the facility was licensed.
This information is somewhat basic at this time, however, it does provide an accurate and unbiased way to further your research, and to find facilities in both urban, and rural areas in Utah.
Ok, thank you for watching our tutorial on using trusted, state-sponsored data and resources to find senior care and assisted living in Utah. Thanks again!
