Are you planning to build an assisted living facility or managing an existing one? It is imperative that you install a fire protection system that is tailored to the facility’s location, its classification, and its size. At ASCO Fire, we specialize in fire protection solutions for assisted living facilities. Our team can help you determine the code requirements for your facility and how best to meet them.
About the Assisted Living Industry
According to the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA), assisted living facilities are designed as a senior living option. The industry is comprised of private duty support services, organized social interaction, and apartment style housing.
Some individuals, who stay in assisted living facilities, may require assistance with everyday activities and tasks, e.g. transportation, dressing, bathing, medication management, and meals. Others may also be suffering from disorders such as Alzheimer’s.
It is common for third-party healthcare service providers to visit the facilities periodically or rent an office in the building. These service providers are needed to help individuals who require assistance with incontinence, mobility, and other challenges.
Assisted Living Facilities that Require Fire Protection Services
Assisted living facilities are designed to provide personal care assistance and healthcare services in a home-like environment. Below are the two main types of assisted living facilities:
- Type A Assisted Living Facilities: Residents in these facilities can follow instructions during emergency evacuation procedures and don’t need routine attendance late at night.
- Type B Assisted Living Facilities: Residents in these facilities are often incapable of following directions in case of emergencies. They may need routine attendance late at night too.
