Assisted Living – Residential Care Apartment Complex (RCAC) This is an apartment type setting where five or more individuals live and offer independence and control over personal space, care decisions and daily routines. This type of housing would benefit someone who needs some assistance with daily living care and nursing services yet can function in an apartment setting. Up to twenty-eight hours per week of supportive services such as assistance with medication, bathing, dressing, grooming and nursing care are provided. If a resident requires more than twenty-eight hours of supportive service per week, the tenant can contract with a home health care agency or obtain assistance through informal supports such as friends and family to assist with care needs. Emergency assistance is available twenty-four hours a day. Social and recreational activities as well as meals will be available. Be sure to ask about the services and if there is an additional charge for any of them. Registered and certified facilities will accept only personal funds for payments. Medicare and Medical Assistance do not pay for these facilities. Rent and other charges are self-pay. The manager can assist with financial questions. Be sure to ask if there is a “care charge” for residents needing assistance. – Manitowoc County
