We ask that the arrangement and amount of furniture be done so that there are no tripping hazards.

How long can I stay in an Assisted Living Facility before moving to a Nursing Home?
Assisted Living facilities are licensed and regulated by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. Our regulations state that a resident of an assisted living facility must be able to perform one Activity of Daily Living (bathing, dressing, feeding) and not need the services of a licensed nurse in order to remain in an assisted living facility. This being said, residents are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. At Villages of Jackson Creek Assisted Living, we believe that open communication is vital to the care of our residents. We will always notify our families about any change in condition and do everything we can to extend the time that our residents can stay in their “home” within the regulations of DHSS.
