Business Plan For Assisted Living Facility
On the Colorado website, it was listed as: If you are interested in applying for licensing or for certification, please send a letter of intent form to the following address: Facility Licensing Application Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, HFEMS 4300 Cherry Creek Drive South Denver CO 80246-1530 The Letter of Intent can be found here (.pdf) As we mentioned, each state is different, and you may have to jump through different hoops to get the answers you need.
I imagine that by just simply calling someone in the Department of Health sections of the state website, they can point you in the right direction. Finding this information for your location may require a slightly different strategy.
You will most certainly need to already have the property and have it inspected before you can obtain a license, so if you are just in the planning phases, you will need to consider the licensing requirements as you develop your facility. Do you think that you can hire the appropriate staff to care for a resident with advanced Alzheimer’s?
Once you have an idea on what it will take to get your license, you may need to develop your business plan if you haven’t already done so. What do you charge for – is it a flat-fee for services, or do you charge extra for added services?
