Compared to all U.S. states, Michigan ranks second by the number of assisted living facilities, despite only being ranked at 14 in the list of states with the highest percentage of population age 65 and older.

What is the difference between an assisted living facility and an intermediate care facility?

Both assisted living facilities and intermediate care facilities (ICFs) are long-term care facilities but differ in the level of care they provide.

An assisted living facility provides housing, meals, and personal care support for full-time residents. Other services may include medication management, recreational and exercise activities, laundry and housekeeping services, and transportation arrangements. While residents of ALFs do not require round-the-clock nurse supervision, these facilities do provide 24-hour assistance with daily activities, as needed.

Residents of an intermediate care facility require more care than those at an ALF but less care than those at a skilled nursing facility (SNF). Typically, residents go to an ICF because of mental health conditions or declining health that make it difficult for the person to care for themselves. These facilities provide more personal services such as assistance with daily hygiene practices, dressing, and moving around the facility. Like ALFs, ICFs also provide medication management, laundry and housekeeping assistance, and transportation.
