Will an RFCE accept or retain someone with medical care needs?
It will depend on the type and severity of the medical condition(s) and whether the facility meets the state licensing standards for restrictive health conditions. Some medical conditions are not allowed in a Residential Care Facility for the Elderly (e.g., tube feeding, or treatment of open bedsores). Check the facilities license to see if they have met the requirements to serve persons who need help in leaving the building in case of emergency (i.e., non-ambulatory) or with certain medical conditions (e.g., hospice waiver).
