ProvidersWeb's Care Service System
This document breaks down why a resident needs care, what
type of services will be provided, and how the services shall
be provided. It outlines ProvidersWeb's view on what care
standards need to be met. Each state has it's own standards
which need to be met. In creating the ProvidersWeb's Care
Service System all 50 states residential care regulations
were reviewed as well as JACHO's Assisted Living Accreditation
Standards, and the Federal Assisted Living Work Group's Report
on the standards needed, information from the Alzheimer's
Association, the American Bar Association, AARP plus much
more. We believe ProvidersWeb's Care Standards meet and exceed
the general consensus of what the American Public wants when
it comes to care services.
