Opening Your Own ALF with Carline Cadet Francois

assisted living

On this Living to 100 Club podcast, our guest explains the process of starting a residential assisted living facility. Carline Cadet Francois explains the differences between small, residential ALF’s and large commercial ALF’s. With the burgeoning older adult population, and the growing need for congregate housing, our guest shares her experience with ALF’s. This includes the licensing, regulations, and financing process to owning and operating your own facility. Though intimately involved with the regulations in her state, we learn that the procedures are very similar in the rest of the U.S. Understand the required dietary and program steps; hiring, staffing, and credentialing process; buying vs. leasing the property, and many other details. Be sure to join us as we learn the advantages and the challenges of being your own boss as owner/operator of an ALF.
