Notes: An RCFE is a housing arrangement chosen voluntarily by the resident, the resident’s guardian, conservator, or other responsible person where 75% of residents are 60 years or older and where varying levels of care and supervision are provided as agreed to at the time of admission or as determined necessary at subsequent times of reappraisal. Younger residents must have needs that are compatible with other residents. Segments may not add to 100% due to rounding.
