What is Assisted Living?
Assisted living is a special combination of housing and personalized support services designed to meet the needs-both scheduled and unscheduled-of those who need help with activities of daily living. Activities of daily living can include tasks related to personal hygiene, laundry, eating, and other similar personal care needs.
Assisted Living is Different
How is Assisted Living different than traditional care? One of assisted living’s defining features is the individualized personal care provided to residents who need assistance with activities of daily living or for example help with medications.

Proposed CMS Medicaid Rule
By clicking on the link below, you will be taken to the full text of proposed federal rule changes regarding Medicaid eligibility. If enacted as written, the changes would have serious implications for NHARCH members who participate in NH's HC-BC/CFI waiver program and for residents served by the program. Among our key concerns are proposed changes to eligibility requirements including a defined model of AL accommodations which do not exist here in NH (nor in many other states across the country). While the official public comment period has expired, NHARCH has engaged the services of outside counsel and is already moving ahead with efforts to meet with our national elected officials to work in tandem with other states and similarly minded organizations to fight enactment of the proposed rules. Anyone with specific questions may contact our offices at 800-544-0906.
