You may be confused about whether assisted living is the best choice for you or your loved one. While licensing requirements for assisted living communities vary by state, they generally provide care for individuals who do not require around-the-clock skilled nursing. The National Center for Assisted Living defines assisted living as “part of a continuum of long-term care services that provides a combination of housing, personal care services, and health care designed to respond to individuals who need assistance with normal daily activities in a way that promotes maximum independence.”
Thus, assisted living communities are ideal for seniors who are mainly independent but need help with the Activities of Daily Living (ADL) such as dressing, bathing, and other personal care tasks. They also provide daily meals and 24/7 care and can readily accommodate residents’ changing needs and preferences. Most offer transportation and housekeeping services, which mean an assisted living home is perfect for aging in place.
Many communities provide wellness programs and activities that engage and support the residents’ intellectual, physical, social, and spiritual needs. Furthermore, many encourage family members to get involved with the community’s activities and special events.
