When a resident requires assistance on a daily basis and can no longer live independently, Assisted Living is the best choice. Typically, residents can continue living in an apartment while receiving one-on-one aid with daily activities such as personal grooming and medication management. Residents may choose the level of care they require, ranging from minimum supervision to specialized assistance.
Independent and Assisted Living apartments are often located on the same campus. The advantage of this is that when a resident begins to need more assistance, he or she can continue to live in the same community, avoiding the potential distress of having to settle into new surroundings.
