Assisted Living & Skilled Nursing     
In addition to Independent Living (IL), most CCRCs have Assisted Living (AL) and Skilled Nursing (SN) facilities on the same site and are included in their Continuing Care contract. However, there is no standard and very little regulation or oversite except for skilled nursing. Post your thoughts and comment about Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing in this forum.

Ombudsman     
This Forum is to share experiences related to state legislatures and to determine how many states have Independent Living Ombudsmans and other CCRC regulations. How did these states get legislation passed that provides CCRC residents with increased protections and a greater role in the governance of their communities? For the states that have ombudsmen, how well is the program working?

Resident Participation on Governing Boards     
We are not aware of any source that reveals which states require at least one resident to be on the Governing Board of CCRCs in their State. Comment in this forum on your state's position on resident Board membership. If your community has residents on your governing Board, how many are on the Board? Do they have a vote? Can any resident observe the Board meetings?
