It is the intent of the Legislature to encourage the provision of care for the elderly in family-type living arrangements in private homes as an alternative to institutional or nursing home care for such persons. The provisions of ss. 430.601-430.606 are intended to be supplemental to the provisions of chapters 400 and 429, relating to the licensing and regulation of nursing homes and assisted living facilities, and do not exempt any person who is otherwise subject to regulation under those chapters.
