An assisted living facility in the state of Minnesota is called a Comprehensive Home Care Provider. It is housing registered with the state or Minnesota that provides personal services.

Minnesota has no separate category for assisted living and does not license them as such under that heading. If a care provider has a housing with services registration, they can form a mutual contract with a home care agency that holds a comprehensive home care license. An official Housing with Services would not meet the license requirement for assisted living but could still provide some form of non-medical services.

It’s best to speak to the senior living facility itself to be clear on what they do offer and determine if it matches the needs of the senior in need of services. They certainly would not meet memory care or Alzheimer’s care needs because they are non-medical and would not have the proper specialized staffing or security.

This brings us to another important note to remember, especially for a state that is so vague in their definition of assisted living. When you take note of the cost mentioned, these are the base rates for what is deemed assisted living. They do not reflect memory or Alzheimer’s care. So, the prudent thing to do is to assess the senior professionally to determine when and if the senior may need comprehensive memory or Alzheimer’s care.

If they presently show no signs of memory issues, the history and health of the senior is taken into consideration. Not all seniors will develop Alzheimer’s but all senior will have at some point the need for some memory care. This should be considered in the long-term cost of the care of the senior. If it’s determined that the senior needs constant care provided by a nurse, they can receive such care at one of the nursing homes in Minnesota, instead of assisted living facilities.

Room Types and Regulations for Assisted Living in Minnesota

For private rooms in units in Minnesota assisted living establishments, there are no specifications for minimum square footage required. All they state is that the buildings and rooms must be up to state building code. There is also no state regulation as to how many people can stay in a Minnesota assisted living unit. Residents in shared assisted living apartments are roommates by choice and sign a contract to that choice. Such senior living units, however, need to comply with building code capacity for fire safety.

The bathroom regulations for assisted living facilities in Minnesota are also not stated. It does not state whether it is required to have a private bathroom for each resident or even a private bathroom for a specific number of residents to a room or to a floor of an assisted living facility.

It is recommended to speak to the assisted living home, adult foster care, adult day care or nursing facility in Minnesota that you are considering, and to go to visit if possible. Assisted living regulations are quite vague in the case of the state of Minnesota, so you will want a more complete picture of the circumstances you or your senior will encounter there. This is not to say that Minnesota has any negative points against the facilities, they may well have more stringent standards than others in some homes, but touring each individual facility is suggested.
