HSM 4586: Management in Assisted Living and Senior Care Settings

3 CreditsOnline Available

Assisted living directors increasingly lead complex organizations that provide many different types of services to residents and their families. This course helps students understand aging as well as the operations and functions of assisted living communities, governance and leadership, administrative structures and responsibilities, and the roles of professional and nonprofessional staff. In 2019, the Minnesota State Legislature passed historic regulatory reform in assisted living, culminating in a new facility license and a new director license. State statute sets forth domains of practice for assisted living directors. Education in these domains is required prior to licensure. This course is designed to meet the Assisted Living Director license requirements of the State of Minnesota Board of Examiners for Long Term Services and Supports. Prerequisites: While there are no formal prerequisites, the successful student must have some basic knowledge of aging services and/or the long term care field. Students who are unfamiliar with this field are encouraged to meet with the instructor prior to registering for this course.
