What is assisted living?

An assisted living facility combines residential housing, personalized support services, and health care for people who need some help with daily living activities. Residents have as much independence as they want with the knowledge that personal care and support services are available if they need them. These communities tend to be apartment homes that also provide housekeeping services, three meals a day, and social events. Assisted living communities may help with daily tasks such as bathing and grooming but their services do not include medical care (such as wound care, colostomy care, or IV maintenance).
