Frequently Asked Questions
About Assisted Living

Assisted Living is a wonderful option for seniors who don’t need or want institutionalized care but do want maximum convenience and opportunities for enrichment.

Assisted Living is a supportive senior living option that promotes independence and personal dignity in a safe, home-like environment.

Assisted Living is a maintenance-free lifestyle where residents make their home in a private suite with full access to all amenities the community offers.

Each resident has an assisted services program tailored to their individual needs. The customized care plan can include daily personal assistance services, such as dressing, bathing, meals, housekeeping, and medication assistance and management.

Assisted Living offers amenities including entertainment, exercise, activities, dining, and transportation.

Many people confuse Assisted Living with Nursing Homes. The two are very different. While a Nursing Home is a medical provider, Assisted Living is a social model.

The following information can help you to compare the options:

Assisted Living Residents can be individuals or couples. They are independent but desire the freedom of knowing that the day-to-day details of life will be handled and that they can receive assistance with activities of daily living, like medication assistance, bathing, dressing, and grooming. They like that nutritious menus are created by a registered dietitian and meals are prepared the Executive Chef and that there are many social and enrichment activities available throughout the day.
