Finding the Right Assisted Living Facility
Among assisted living communities there is a wide variation in
the level of care that may be provided. Some communities specialize
in providing a supportive and safe environment for seniors who are
largely independent but need some minor periodic assistance with
activities of daily living or medication management. It is
sometimes difficult to convince seniors who fall into this category
that they need the services of a skilled assisted living
Other providers design their services specifically for the very
frail elderly who need a high level of assistance on a daily basis.
These assisted living facilities have become a substitute for
nursing homes and frequently provide many, though not all, of the
same care services as a skilled nursing facility. It is important
to know what type of environment each community caters to so that
your loved one will be most comfortable. If you have questions,
