Kentucky has long been a center of agriculture and animal husbandry. Horse breeding and racing remain important drivers of the state's economy. At the same time, auto production and repair have also become part of the state's repetoire as several companies including Toyota have set up shop in the Bluegrass State. Kentucky is dedicated to being business friendly and keeps business licensing relatively simple - and processes straightforward.
In Kentucky, assisted Living Facilities offer the elderly the opportunity to remain independent. ALFs provide personal assistance and meals, while still giving seniors their own apartments and/or rooms. These non-medical facilities carry significant responsibility for the care and welfare of elders and therefore have their own licensing category in most states. In many cases, counties and cities also place permit and licensing requirements on ALFs.
