RCFE Residents Under Age 60

Yesterday a Tuesday Tip subscriber emailed to ask if she could admit a resident under age 60 into her RCFE.  While there are various factors to be considered, the short answer is yes, with some restrictions.  Regulation 87101 states:

“Residential Care Facility for the Elderly” means a housing arrangement chosen voluntarily by the resident, the resident’s guardian, conservator or other responsible person; where 75 percent of the residents are sixty years of age or older and where varying levels of care and supervision are provided, as agreed to at time of admission or as determined necessary at subsequent times of reappraisal. Any younger residents must have needs compatible with other residents.”
