Description of Assisted Living
Assisted Living Facilities are large facilities with 50- 150 residents. They are usually very elegant and beautifully appointed facilities. They are geared to highly independent seniors, who do not require a lot of assistance with daily tasks or personal care. Some might consider them a Retirement Community.
They usually offer studio or one bedroom apartments which allow residents a sense of privacy and independence. They provide daily meals and weekly cleaning/laundry services. In addition, many facilities provide group activities and offer transportation on a facility bus for residents to go shopping or attend various outings. These activities and outings are unaccompanied and require to senior to be capable of planning, arranging and managing their money and time, for example getting to the bus at the right time and doing their own shopping.
