What is Assisted living?

Assisted living is a type of senior living arrangement designed for older adults who need some assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, grooming, and medication management. Assisted living communities provide residents with a safe and supportive living environment where they can receive personalized care and support while maintaining their independence and privacy.

Assisted living communities typically offer a range of services and amenities, such as housekeeping and laundry services, transportation, medication management, assistance with ADLs, social and recreational activities, and on-site nursing care. Many communities also have common areas where residents can socialize, participate in activities, and enjoy meals together.

Assisted living communities come in a variety of sizes and styles, ranging from small residential homes to large, multi-story buildings. Some communities are designed specifically for individuals with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia, while others cater to seniors with specific medical needs or disabilities.

The cost of assisted living varies depending on the location, level of care required, and the amenities and services provided. Many seniors pay for assisted living through private funds or long-term care insurance, while some states offer assistance through Medicaid or other programs.

Overall, assisted living provides seniors with a safe, supportive, and comfortable living environment where they can receive the assistance and care they need to maintain their independence and quality of life.
