The final Assisted Living Residence regulations are intended to create the regulatory framework necessary to implement the provisions of the Assisted Living Reform Act of 2004 (ALRA). Published initially in the NYS Register on March 28, 2007, a total of 945 written comments were received from individuals and organizations during the 45-day public comment period.
The regulations, with substantive changes, were republished on December 26, 2007 for a 30-day comment period. Six hundred additional written comments were received and non-substantive changes were made to the final regulations.
Attached you will find a copy of this final regulatory package which will appear in the NYS Register on March 26, 2008. As the NYS Register will only contain a summary of this regulation and an Assessment of Public Comment, the Department of Health has posted this copy of the final Assisted Living Residence regulations for your convenience.
