What is Assisted Living?

Assisted living properties come in all shapes, sizes and neighborhoods. Based on the varied preferences and needs of the elderly there are a variety of settings from which to choose. These choices range from high-rise buildings to one-story Victorian mansions to large multi-acre campuses. Assisted living properties are also located in single-family homes and duplexes referred to as residential care properties
The philosophy of assisted living is to provide personalized, resident centered care in order to meet individual preferences and needs. Assisted living is designed for individuals who require assistance with everyday activities such as meals, medication management or assistance, bathing, dressing and transportation. Some residents may have memory disorders including Alzheimer's, or they may need help with mobility, incontinence or other challenges. Assisted living treats all residents with dignity, provides privacy and encourages independence and freedom of choice. Resident family members and friends are encouraged to get involved in the assisted living community.
