A residence that offers meals, social activities and housekeeping is referred to as "Supportive Living" by us, and is typically not regulated because it offers mainly hospitality services.  As soon as other supports are provided, including care, they are more likely to be regulated.

Because of seniors’ preferences to be able to age in place, that is, to get additional services such as medication support, some bathing assistance and other light supports that involve or may involve a "laying on of hands", to be able to stay in that community and in the familiarity of friends and staff, buildings that offer these aging in place services are typically licensed and regulated.
