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.

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.

About Our Organization

The New Hampshire Association of Residential Care Homes (NHARCH) is a dynamic and professional association of assisted living communities within the state providing residents with assistance in daily living and activities. The Association and its members work closely with regulators and facility owners/administrators to assure the quality of life and care for residents in various members’ homes. It is the statewide affiliate of the Assisted Living Federation of America and represents more residential care/assisted living providers than any other group in the state.

We provide referral services to member facilities for those seeking to find needed care for a loved one, patient or client. NHARCH is the primary provider of educational forums and programs for those working in residential/assisted living care. Our popular fall annual convention and membership meetings throughout the year also provide an excellent opportunity for learning and networking.
