The 7 Day ACFI Appraisal Rule

Update: ACFI Appraisals for Providers

Providers must provide a care recipient with seven continuous days of residential care before making an ACFI appraisal.

If a person received respite for 10 days and then entered permanent care, the appraisal could be made on the day that the person entered permanent residential care. If a person received respite care and returned home before entering care permanently, the assessment would take place after seven consecutive days of permanent care.
