  • GAO Report on Assisted Living
    GAO was asked to review challenges faced by consumers and providers of assisted living and seek out notable state initiatives addressing those challenges in three selectd areas: (1) disclosure of full and accurate information to consumers, (2) state assistance to providers to meet licensing requirements, and (3) procedures for addressing residents' complaints. They identified specific examples of individual programs in Florida, Texas, Washington, Georgia and Massachusetts that highlighted different approaches in these three areas, which other states might wish to consider emulating.
