Assisted Living Report Card

An Assisted Living Report Card to measure and report on the quality of individual assisted living settings for housing and services paid for privately and through public programs, has been developed for Minnesota. The report card is a joint effort between the Department of Human Services (DHS) Aging and Adult Services Division (AASD) and the Minnesota Board on Aging (MBA). Results will be shared with the public through the Assisted Living Report Card website and will be updated over-time as new data on quality are available.

Announcements

June 3, 2024: Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) surveys completed on or after July 1, 2024 will be used for new Assisted Living (AL) Report Card ratings.

  • DHS will add new quality ratings based on MDH surveys to its AL Report Card in early 2025. 
  • The Resident Health, Safety, and Staffing ratings will be updated quarterly based on surveys MDH completes on or after July 1, 2024. For a schedule of when DHS plans to post these ratings to the report card, see the MDH Survey Ratings Schedule (PDF) document.
  • For more information on these measures, including how MDH surveys will be used to calculate report card ratings, see the Frequently Asked Questions document. 
  • For a list of MDH survey tags included in the new Resident Health, Safety, and Staffing measures, see the documents shared below:
  • Resident Health Tags (PDF)
  • Safety Tags (PDF)
  • Staffing Tags (PDF)
  • Minnesota assisted living laws require MDH to survey licensed assisted living providers at least once every two years. The purpose of these surveys is to evaluate and monitor the care and services provided to assisted living residents and determine if the provider is complying with licensing requirements. For more information about how these surveys are conducted, see MDH’s Assisted Living Licensure  webpage.

Project Milestones

Advisory Group

An Advisory Group was formed to provide input on different aspects of the report card development and implementation process.

Upcoming Project Work 

Between February 2024 and February 2025, project work will include:

  • Conducting a third round of statewide resident and family survey data collection in assisted living facilities with the capacity to serve five or more residents.
  • Publishing resident quality of life and family satisfaction ratings on more assisted living facilities based on the third round of statewide resident and family surveys.
  • Finalizing additional measures of quality, including the resident health, safety, and staffing measures, based on state licensing inspections and other data sources.
