Assisted living is a type of care for older adults who need help with normal daily activities that are provided in a residential facility. To best understand what assisted living is, it can be helpful to define what it’s not. It is not a nursing home or a setting where residents need round-the-clock medical care. Instead, seniors in assisted living receive personal care and assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, grooming, and toileting so that they’re able to live as independently as possible.
What’s more, a look around a typical assisted living community will reveal something far different from the clinical setting many imagine when they hear the words “retirement home.” While each community is different, assisted living facilities in the U.S. today typically offer a wide range of convenient services, comforts, amenities and enriching activities to ensure residents get the help and care they need, in a setting they can call “home.”
