What is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is an option for seniors who need or want assistance with some of the activities of daily living; such as housekeeping, cooking meals, getting to the bathroom, and traveling to appointments. An assisted living facility may be a good choice if you need more personal care services than you can get at home or an independent living retirement community, but you don’t need the round-the-clock medical care and supervision of a nursing home.

Choosing the right assisted living facility.
There is a huge variation among assisted living facilities. While this can make the process of choosing seem daunting, the plus side is that you have a good chance of finding a facility that is perfectly suited to your preferences and needs.
