CBRF is a place where five or more unrelated people live together in a community setting and receive care, treat- ment or services in addition to room and board. What support services do CBRF residents commonly receive? Residents receive assistance and support with activities of daily living (ADLs) with a goal to remain as indepen- dent as possible. ADLs are basic tasks and routine activities people do every day. Six basic ADLs include: eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, transfer- ring and maintaining conti- nence; being able to perform and maintain these ADLs is directly linked to a person’s independence. For those who have a long-term care insurance policy, policy lan- guage often requires that an individual must be unable to perform two or more of the six ADLs to make an insur- ance claim. The ability of a person to perform their ADLs is some- thing the CBRF staff will con- sider when determining if a person would benefit from an assisted living environment. According to DhS, an assessment will include a review of physical health, 28 | S E N I O R R E S O U R C E S 2 0 2 1 -2 2

Plans are reviewed annually or when there is a change in a resident's needs, abilities or physical or mental condition. In addition to support with activities of daily living, other services commonly offered in a CBRF include meals, housekeeping, laun- dry, linen cleaning and med- ication management. In some cases, the primary reason a person moves to assisted living is to have a more robust social life. Many communities offer organized activities based on resident interests. Book clubs, restau- rant outings, bus trips, fitness classes and more are routine- ly available. For a socially isolated senior, a move to a CBRF can provide uplifting experiences that foster new friendships and relationships. Residents find companion- ship in socializing with oth- ers who are in a similar stage of life. Individuals also find that with supportive staff and cer- tain adaptations, they can continue to do the same activities they have always enjoyed. For a long-time gar- dener, a raised flower bed can allow someone to contin- ue their love of gardening.

After someone moves in, the CBRF will prepare and implement a written tem- porary service plan to meet the immediate needs of the resident until the Comprehensive Individual Service Plan is completed. This individual plan includes such things as identifying someone’s needs, establishing measur- able goals, specifying meth- ods for delivering necessary care and who is responsible for delivering the care.
