The term "assisted living facility" is not exclusive; some interchangeable terms include "supportive care," "residential care," "homes for the aged," "foster care," "board and care homes," and "group homes." Each state may use a different definition to describe these facilities, with no specific definition a gold standard. In the state of California, assisted living facilities are defined as 24-hour residences that provide assistance with activities of daily living, meals, laundry, and dispensing of medications.
Fresno County, CA has an estimated population of 931,098 people and approximately 183 Licensed Assisted living Facilities or Care Homes as they are often called.
