Fire Protection for Assisted Living Facilities

Fire Protection for Assisted Living Facilities

Complex Needs and Requirements

Assisted Living facilities present unique fire project challenges due not only to the necessity of accommodating the unique needs of residents, but also with regards to the regulatory compliance requirements. Facilities must be in compliance with both the NFPA 101 Life Safety Code (LSC), and Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) requirements.

Silver Crest Assisted Living and Memory Care 

Silver Crest was co-founded by a woman with over 15 years of nursing experience in senior living, and a vision to provide the highest quality of life to aging adults with memory disorders. The new home consists of 14 units with 16 beds and a clubhouse.

Silver Crest practices a “resident-first” approach that prioritizes the care, safety and satisfaction of those in it’s community over business outcomes and bottom lines.
