HOME FOR AGED means a facility operated by a person, association or corporation which receives persons 65 years of age or over into a physical setting with the intention or practice of assuming for them responsibilities which go beyond that customarily associated with a landlord-tenant relationship.
(A) In determining the need for a permit, the intention, obligations, or practices which shall be construed as indications or evidence of a need for a permit, including the following:
(1) Identification of the establishment and the service offered by any name, description or advertisement which implies a service to aged people other than that of housing, a place serving food to the public, a nursing or convalescent home, or a psychiatric care facility.
(2) Implied or actual assumption of respon-sibility for general oversight and, as needed, personal care to aged persons, such as help with bathing, dressing, eating, care of clothing, mending, laundry, personal shopping, transportation, health supervision, assistance in maintaining social and recreational contacts, and the like.
(B) Any practice, intention or obligation which does not include all the services required in regula-tions governing the permitting of reception and care of the aged shall not, however, be presumed to excuse any person, corporation or association from the need for a permit.
