Description of service

Assisted living bridges the gap between living on your own and living in a nursing home. Assistance with daily living activities such as bathing, dressing, eating, housekeeping and transportation is provided. The assistance needed may not require the round-the-clock, skilled health care a nursing home provides, yet needs cannot be met living in a more independent setting. Choices will vary from single or double rooms to suites and apartments. The cost can be anywhere from $1000 a month to sometimes even $2000 per month. In some area of the country, assisted living residences may be called different names, such as personal care, residential care, or domiciliary care. Assisted living residences may be part of a retirement community, nursing home or elderly housing facility, or they may stand-alone. Whatever the setting, assisted living offers the opportunity for residents to continue living as independently as possible.


Review of Service

Assisted living facilities are excellent service providers. They are very much needed. There are a wide variety of assisted living facilities to choose from. You have to find the best one that meets your needs.


Tips

You may want to call several assisted living locations in your general area. Then you can make an appointment to go in and see for yourself what the place is like.
