The Right Solution?

Appropriate candidates for Assisted Living

It's estimated that one million Americans currently live in Assisted Living Facilities. Residents may suffer from mild memory disorders, or simply need help with mobility, incontinence or other challenges. Assisted Living is appropriate for anyone who can no longer manage to live on their own but doesn't require extensive medical care.

Assisted Living Facility residents may need help with activities of daily living, including:

  • bathing
  • dressing
  • toileting
  • grooming
  • cooking/eating
  • getting around
  • housekeeping
  • transportation

If a senior needs a number of services, an Assisted Living Facility may become a more economical alternative to home care services.

An Assisted Living Facility is often the first stop for an elder who needs to get help with daily living. Some residents move on to a Nursing Home; others may come to Assisted Living from a Nursing Home or hospital after a period of rehabilitation.
