What is Personal Care in Kentucky?

In the Commonwealth of Kentucky, a Personal Care community is part of a healthcare continuum of care that includes Personal Care communities, Assisted Living communities and Nursing Homes.

Personal Care communities are licensed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky through the Kentucky Cabinet of Health Services, while Assisted Living communities are certified (not licensed) by the Kentucky Department for Aging and Independent Living.

A Personal Care community will often allow the resident to “age in place” longer before a higher level of care may be required, i.e., a nursing home. The greatest difference between Personal Care and Assisted Living relates to nursing oversight and medication management, which is provided at a Personal Care community.

When choosing between assisted living and personal care in Kentucky, it’s important to consider your needs.
