    There are four types of assisted living facilities in Illinois, including Assisted Living Establishments and Shared Housing Establishments, which are regulated by the Illinois Department of Public Health; Sheltered Care Facilities, which are licensed under the Nursing Home Care Act; and Supportive Living Facilities, which are certified by the Department of Healthcare and Family Services
