Hundreds of thousands of American seniors utilize assisted living, a figure that is only growing. For these seniors, assisted living combines residential housing, assistance in daily activities, and some healthcare. These communities also strive to provide an atmosphere that is comfortable and engaging for their residents.
Assisted living may also be known as assisted care, assistive care, residential care, supportive living, basic care, personal care, adult living facilities, adult foster care, or personal care in certain states. They may be free-standing community, a section of a continuing care community, nursing home, or an addition to an independent living community.
Through assistance with healthcare, personal care, help with household tasks, as well as planned social and recreational events, seniors in assisted living homes can gain an increased quality of life while also maintaining their independence.
