In Arizona assisted living homes, or senior group homes, are licensed for up to 10 residents. Some areas, such as the city of Chandler, are restricted to 5 residents.

How are the homes staffed?

The staffing of homes depends on the size and residents level of care. Homes with residents that need more care will require more staff to ensure that all of the necessary tasks are completed. Some homes may only require one or two staff members. The staff may include a manager or administrator, cooks, and caregivers.

How are residents' needs assessed?
