"Older Adult" Communities
Assisted Living refers to the level of care provided residents of adult residential communities who require assistance with managing the ‘activities of daily living’. With the goal of living with the greatest degree of independence possible, each resident receives the assistance needed to accomplish activities such as toileting, bathing, grooming and dressing. Persons with medical conditions may be accepted as residents, if their medical needs do not require continuous skilled nursing.
Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) of today provide warm and enriching environments for their residents, often offering more than the typical comforts of “home.” Services and amenities offered vary by community, which can range from basic, essential care communities to high-end resort-style communities. Scheduled transportation and meal plans are typically included in all.
