Assisted Living Access
For assisted living operators, the county
executive’s plan offers a way to get into
this otherwise hard-to-crack community of 295,000 residents. Under present rules, an assisted living community
can only come in if an equal number of
skilled nursing beds come off the market. Hence, the offer to withdraw those
beds creates a unique opportunity.
“I am not only willing to see that trade-off, I am willing to give up my skilled capacity to see that someone else gets that assisted living capacity, because I know that we
don’t have enough assisted living capacity
in the county to fulfill the need,” Rodat says.
“We think it’s a win-win for the taxpayers and for Albany County residents.
For a lot of organizations that had no way
to penetrate this particular market in the
past, now they will at least have a shot
at it.” ❏
