Supported and assisted living

Local authorities and national government are encouraging providers to develop supported living schemes for both older people and younger adults with specialist needs.

There’s also considerable market pressure to increase the amount of available assisted living facilities for older people.

However, the regulations around supported and assisted living are complex. Providers run the risk of prosecution for operating an unregistered care home if their supported living service does not comply with the relevant requirements. It’s essential to seek legal advice and stay up-to-date with the legislation if you want to avoid these risks and make the most of the opportunities available.

Our healthcare team has a strong reputation in the field of supported and assisted living. We can take you step by step through the process and deal with the correct drafting of the necessary legal documentation.
