Assisted Living

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is where compassionate senior living staff helps residents with daily tasks such as dressing, bathing and medication management so they can maintain their independence. It’s the belief that just because someone needs a little extra support, doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy a vibrant lifestyle.

What is life like at an assisted living community?

Picture your loved one knowing that they have the freedom and independence to make the most out of each day. With support for daily tasks, so much more becomes possible. From going for a hike in a nearby park to trying out a new recipe in a cooking class, assisted living gives your loved one more opportunities for a vibrant lifestyle.

How is assisted living different from a nursing home?

While assisted living communities are designed to give seniors assistance with daily tasks like getting dressed or managing medication, a nursing home caters to more healthcare-focused needs. Assisted living residents have the freedom to enjoy a wide variety of amenities. Patients in a nursing home don’t usually have that option since many of them need around-the-clock nursing care available to attend to their needs.

When is it time for my loved one to move to assisted living?

The “right” time for assisted living is different for every senior. But one of the best signs is when you notice that your loved one could use some help with daily tasks. If they are struggling with responsibilities like managing their medication, getting dressed, bathing and preparing meals, it’s time to start looking into assisted living options.
