    Hi. I am interested in opening up small assisted living facility but i don't know where to start.

    I have been trying to get some info from AHCA (agency for health care administration).

    Information i found so far

    -There is no provider within 1000feet of the house that i am using for the buizness

    - I need to take assisted living administrative training.

    - I can open it under standard licence (providing basic care).

    -I can open it under spciality license( which alows them to stay in their current living invironment, if they have medical condition.

    - Need to contact the department of health for food service and hygien permit

    Any one who knows where to get funding and additional information.

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    My wife wants me to start a assisted living facility. Were you able to find the information. I am in the same boat. Its hard looking at a bunch of goverment sites.

    i am trying to make a decision if it is easier to start assisted living facility or adult day care. if it is adult day care they don't have to be their 24/7 which makes it easier in a lot of ways.

    you can check out this website. it is checklist for adult day care center which is similar to the assisted living.

    good luck

    I don't have HHA and live in florida. If you look at the first page, there are some nurses who have info on HHA.

    First you will need to determine if your state/county has a CON certificate of need. If they require one then it will take some money but I have a solution to that.

    CON's usually require some legal fees to get around the states determination of home health census in that area.
    It would be much more cost effective to start an agency in a state that doesn't require a CON such as the state I reside in; Oklahoma. My costs ran slightly less than $25,000 but I am an RN so performing most the functions myself I saved a great amount of salaries (nurse consultant, director of clinical services, administrator (I am licensed),) all I have to pay for is a medical director and a outside consultant (must have). This may be a friend that you pay however keep in mind these functions serve as outside help to your company which otherwise keeps your butt afloat when you step over a federal reg.

    Lots of money in this bussiness but the government will not just hand you this gaurenteed paycheck without you disclosing ALL financials. If you get caught making a mistake (lol or in Florida's case fraud) you can be tried and federally prosecuted. With functions recieving federal paychecks are required to follow their precedents. All crimes commited (know your bussiness law) are federally taxable, prosecutable, profit determined etc.

    Here's why this is important.

    OASIS
    Outcome and Assessment Information Set
    This form must be filled out by an RN (cost money) and submitted to state by an employee via a software that will be required to pass a state software test. If this form is filled out incorrectly (teaching nurses $$) then you can be audited thus causing red flags on your company thus increasing the audit rates. If you mess this up too much you will have your license pulled and possibly (depending on the damages) federally prosecuted for neglect or torts.

    I am looking for anyone wanting to open a home health agency that has investment capital that is verifiable in Oklahoma. You are not required to be a resident and I can guarantee profit within the first year.

    I am willing to teach and walk the investor through the entire process or consult.
