What is Assisted Living?

Assisted living offers residents help with activities of daily living (ADLs), from dressing and grooming to medication management. These facilities are staffed around the clock with caregivers who offer personal assistance to residents, as well as ongoing community support and supervision. They’re also environments where seniors can enjoy varied programming and form enduring friendships.

Assisted Living Costs

Wondering whether you can afford assisted living? Monthly costs widely vary by community because of a number of factors: location, how much care you need, the services and amenities you receive, the size of your apartment and more. Understanding all these variables starts with asking the right questions.
