Assisted Living Residences

Assisted Living provides a unique combination of residential housing, personalized supportive services, socialization, nutrition and healthcare. Personal Care may offer similar amenities as independent living communities, with the additional services provided for assistance of with his/her personal care needs. It is designed to meet the individual needs of those requiring help with activities of daily living, assistance with medication distribution but do not require skilled nursing care.

Many of the services provided will be documented as “assisting, monitoring, supervising” options for seniors residing in this alternative living environment. Depending on the community chosen, some homes offer a variety of services based on the resident’s level of care. Charges vary based on the accommodations purchased and the number of services required and the charges related to each service at the individual homes.

Prior to beginning your search for a new residence, it is recommended that you assess your financial ability to pay the required monthly fee. In addition, we recommend that you speak with your medical doctor to determine whether he believes this alternative living arrangement will meet your medical needs. Be certain to discuss with the community what options are available to you if you become debilitated and may require leaving the community. Also ask if the community is capable of caring for your medical needs as necessary.
