What is Assisted Living?

Assisted Living is for people who need assistance with two or more activities of daily living (ADLs) including bathing, feeding, and dressing. These communities also have activities, dining options, and much more.

Assisted Living community settings vary across the country. In many parts of the country, assisted living could be considered independent living with added services to assist those who need hands-on care. This personalized care may include assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, showering, and toileting.

Some assisted living services are also provided in residential settings.

In these settings, seniors receive either a private or shared room in a residential neighborhood home. Assisted Living communities may also provide transportation to doctor’s offices, crafts, outings to outside stores or other events. Assisted Living is more costly than independent or retirement communities but usually less than memory care.
