Sometime in June 2014, the Community Care Licensing Division website updated the search function for Licensed Residential Care Facilities.
There are now only six different types of licensed facilities to select for a search: 1) Foster Family Agencies, 2) 24 hour Residential Care for Children, 3) Adult Residential and Day Care, 4) Elderly Assisted Living, 5) Child Care or 6) all Facility Types.
If you are searching Elderly Assisted Living, you can select search parameters by Facility Name, Street Address, City, Zip Code, and County. If you select City and County, the page will display facility name, address, zip, license status only. You can go on to select view and another page will display the facility name, license status and date, name of licensee with address and phone number, license number, capacity and contact information for the local CCLD office. In addition, there is a new section for individual facilities which displays: 1) Number of times CCLD has visited the facility, 2) Number of Facility Citations, 3) Number of CCLD inspection dates, 4) Number of Complaints, 5) Map/location of facility.
There is a right side bar entitled: Facility Q & A. According to CCLD, the change provides additional information to the consumer seeking licensed residential care facilities.
