Hi I want to apply for an LTCF in PA and I was wondering what are some ways to get references. It says that family cannot be considered but what is the definition of family? Meaning up to what degree/level is the family connection applicable? What if the person is like a very far away connection like a cousin of my cousin? Any other suggestions to find references? Also, if I am a reference for someone, am I responsible if the person is involved in a shooting incident? I am new to this and was hoping to get some information. Thanks.
