(a)In the case of a permanent closure, the provider shall offer the resident the choice of the following four options, the terms of which shall not be less than the terms of the continuing care contract entered into between the resident and the provider as if that contract had been fully performed:

(1)Relocation to another continuing care facility owned or operated by the provider, if available.

(2)Relocation to a continuing care facility that is not owned by the provider.

(3)Monetary compensation equal to the value of the remainder of the contract as if the contract had been fully performed.

(4)An alternative arrangement that is mutually agreed upon by the provider and the resident or his or her representative.

(b)Replacement housing offered pursuant to paragraph (1) or (2) of subdivision (a) shall be housing that is, overall, comparable in cost, size, services, features, and amenities to the unit being vacated. If the resident chooses either of the replacement housing options in paragraph (1) or (2) of subdivision (a), the provider shall provide the reasonable costs of moving, storage, if applicable, and transportation.

(c)Notwithstanding subdivision (a), for a resident under a life care contract, the provider shall secure replacement housing and care at a comparable facility for the resident at no additional cost to the resident. The replacement housing and care shall comply with subdivision (l) of Section 1771 and subdivision (b) of Section 1788.

(d)The provider may provide relocation pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) on a month-to-month basis, provided that the terms are otherwise consistent with subdivision (a). After 120 days, a resident selecting a facility not owned by the provider may not seek monetary compensation pursuant to paragraph (3) of subdivision (a).
