Is Assisted Living Right for You?

Assisted living is for adults who need help with everyday tasks. It is not an alternative to a nursing home, but an intermediate level of long-term care appropriate for many seniors.


How do you know if your loved one may be ready for assisted living?

Assisted living is for those needing assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) but wishing to live as independently as possible for as long as possible. Assisted living provides help with ADLs such as eating, bathing, dressing, laundry, housekeeping, and assistance with medications. Assisted living has grown in popularity in recent years because it is less restrictive and less expensive than a nursing home. Assisted living residences, such as Central Assisted Living, promote independence and provide the residents with freedom.



What should you know about assisted living residences in general?

It is important to know what type of environment each assisted living residence caters to so that your loved one will be comfortable and happy. Find out if the assisted living residence offers any exercise programs, shopping trips, and other forms of entertainment options. Assisted living residences range in size from three to more than 200 beds. There is no nationally recognized definition of assisted living. Assisted living residences are regulated and licensed at the state level. Some assisted living facilities are part of retirement.
