Assisted Living defined*

An assisted living residence is a special combination of housing, personalized supportive services and health care designed to meet the needs -- both scheduled and unscheduled of those who need help with activities of daily living.

These needs usually include meals each day served in a common dining area, housekeeping services, assistance with eating, bathing, dressing, toileting and walking, 24-hour security and staff availability, medication management, personal laundry services, and others.

Assisted living facilities tend to be very different from one another. An assisted living unit may be as grand as a small apartment with a tiny kitchen in a large complex or as modest as a shared room with little more than a bed and dresser for each resident. One can find an assisted living facility housing 100 residents and providing on-site nursing care two blocks away from another facility that houses six residents and employs a staff with no healthcare expertise at all.
