What type of help is typically provided for residents in assisted living?
In an assisted living community, residents get help with some of the basic activities of daily living. These often include assistance with bathing, dressing and grooming, medication management and personal maintenance. The specific assistance provided is determined by a personal services assessment in order to understand needs. The goal of assisted living is to allow residents to enjoy their lives with just the right help while living as independently as possible. Learn more about how assisted living keeps you independent longer on our blog.
What’s the difference between assisted living and a nursing home?
Assisted living gives you the helping hand you need to keep active, stay engaged, and pursue your passions. You’ll live in a beautifully appointed apartment home and receive assistance with the basic activities of daily living, tailored to your specific needs, such as help with bathing, dressing and grooming, medication management, and personal maintenance. Nursing homes, on the other hand, are for those with chronic medical conditions or disabilities, or those in chronic pain, who require round-the-clock care and supervision by licensed skilled nursing professionals.
