Generally speaking, Assisted Living is for people that need help with the activities of daily living (ADLs). Depending on the type of care, individual needs and individual desires, Assisted Living can be a great option for your loved one.
Options range from small, family Residential Care Homes to larger, full-service communities with hundreds of residents. Many of these locations specialize in Dementia Care, including Alzheimer’s.
In years past, many seniors were placed in Nursing Homes and this choice may be necessary for individuals with specific medical problems.
However, with the growth of Assisted Living and residential care homes, other options may work well depending upon your love one’s needs.
