Many of its residents may require live-in supervision at an Alzheimer's Special Care Unit      (SCU), as Pennsylvania assisted living facilities treating patients with cognitive ailments are known. The Office of Long-Term Living is responsible for licensing and overseeing these SCUs across Pennsylvania, including the six that are located in Delaware County.
