WHAT IS ASSISTED LIVING?

Assisted Living Communities are often considered the "next step up" from Independent Living in a senior's journey through aging. Assisted Living Communities provide a safe, caring environment for seniors who have realized or have been advised by their doctors or concerned family members that living on their own may no longer be acceptable or practical.

WHO IS THE BEST FIT FOR AN ASSISTED LIVING COMMUNITY?

Assisted Living is an excellent option for seniors who value important aspects of their independent lifestyles, but are also discovering that they are having struggles with certain daily living activities such as cooking, household tasks, and getting dressed. It is the right time to think about Assisted Living if you have been concerned recently about your loved one going through challenges such as:

  • Being unsteady on their feet
  • Waking up in the middle of the night and needing help to the bathroom
  • Feeling insecure while bathing or showering
  • Being unable to perform physical household chores like climbing up to change a lightbulb or take the trash to the curb
  • Failing to maintain their grooming or medication needs

WHAT IS IT LIKE TO LIVE IN AN ASSISTED LIVING COMMUNITY?

Like Independent Living Communities, Assisted Living Communities are similar in appearance to hotels or apartment buildings, with an average of 50-100 residents. Seniors will have all the comforts of home in a variety of floor plans ranging from studios/deluxe studios to one-and-two bedroom apartments. There will be opportunities to thrive mentally and emotionally by gathering with other like-minded seniors during meals or planned activities and outings, and also have ample time to quietly relax in private, with the peace of mind that comes with knowing they have compassionate care and support to address their physical needs and limitations. Pricing for an Assisted Living Community usually consists of a “base rent” charge for the room and certain amenities like meals and laundry service, with personal care services available at an additional charge.

Amenities at an Assisted Living Community will regularly include:

  • One to three meals a day served in a communal dining room
  • Light housekeeping
  • Laundry service
  • Scheduled transportation to doctor’s appointments
  • Fitness and Wellness programs
  • Educational lectures and classes
  • Social gatherings, outings and activities

Personal Care Services will regularly include:

  • Medication management
  • Assistance with bathing, dressing and grooming
  • Assistance with toileting
  • Escorting to dining and activities
  • Staff available to address both planned and unplanned needs
  • Safety alerts or emergency call systems
