Each Health Authority’s website carries basic information on the residential care facilities within their jurisdiction. See Table 1 for the websites. That may include for example, the facility’s location, the costs, the number of beds and how many (if any) are subsidized. It may also include information on whether the facility has been nationally accredited, any special security features, if there are policies on pets, scooters, or smoking. Some health authority lists of residential care facilities will also direct the public to the provider’s website with more information.
