The Highest Level Of Independence
Assisted Living communities provide the highest level of independence while living in a care setting. They are also the most diverse in terms of what they include and accept. Some assisted-living facilities operate like a resort, and some are more regimented for the protection of their resident’s health and mobility. Some provide medication management and individual meal preparation, while some provide options to subscribe to these services for an additional expense. Some provide routine checks and others assume that you are fine unless you call for help. The most common considerations are: 24 hour security, basic housekeeping,
health and social programs, and access to medical services when necessary. Assisted Living facilities provide for the most independent living under one continuous roof and in most cases they try to keep their common areas looking very nice and inviting. You cannot however assume that you know what assisted living offers if you have not seen them all.
