Assisted Living for Seniors

What Does Assisted Living Provide?

Assisted living communities are designed for seniors who seek daily support with everyday self-care activities, but also want to preserve as much freedom and independence as possible. Residents can receive personal help with the activities of daily living, such as bathing, getting dressed and medication management. Team members are always available for access to care and 24/7 support whenever needed.

Assisted Living Services

One of the most appealing benefits of assisted living is the selection of convenient services and amenities available for residents. With housekeeping and maintenance included, seniors have more time and opportunities to enjoy a vibrant lifestyle, including engaging life enrichment programs and a choice of chef-planned meals to enjoy. As you explore assisted living communities, you’ll find a variety of services and amenities. Here’s a list of typical assisted community features:

  • Comfortable senior apartments, with several floor plans to choose from
  • Emergency call cords and pendants
  • Community gathering areas
  • Wi-Fi for internet connection
  • Transportation services
  • Wellness and educational programs for personal growth and enrichment
  • Freshly prepared chef-planned meals
  • 24-hour maintenance services
  • Assistance with daily living activities
  • Access to health and medical services

Most communities offer varying levels of care to ensure that each person is receiving the assistance they need. Typically, assessments are done at regular intervals so that each resident has an updated individual plan of care in place.
