Assisted Living FAQ

What are the benefits of assisted living?

Assisted living provides residents with customized services and comforts in a place with friendly neighbors and supportive staff.

Customized services include:

  • Help with bathing and grooming
  • Laundry and housekeeping support
  • Medication management
  • Nutritious and delicious meals
  • Social, wellness and spiritual activities

What is the difference between assisted living and independent living?

Assisted living is for individuals who need help with the activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing and taking medication. 

Independent living is for individuals who are looking for maintenance-free living so they can relax and lead a fulfilling life.

Is assisted living the same as a nursing home?

Assisted living is for people who want to live independently but would benefit from having access to help with activities of daily living. Assisted living residents live in their own apartments.

A nursing home provides around-the-clock, long-term care in a community where residents have their own room or share a room with another resident.

Whatever care and services you need, our goal is to help you live your best life.

What is an example of assisted living?

In an assisted living community, a resident has their own apartment, but they may need help with certain aspects of daily life. This could include a staff member coming in once a day to help them with their medications and once a week to provide light housekeeping.

The resident has time to attend the activities they enjoy and eat meals in the dining room while getting to know new friends. Neighbors are close by, giving a community feeling.

Is assisted living the same as a care home?

Assisted living is not the same as a care home. A care home is another name for a nursing home that provides care and services 24/7.

How much does assisted living cost?

Assisted living costs vary by location and the level of care and services chosen, so it's important to learn about payment options.

Your options may include:

  • Long-term care insurance
  • Medicaid
  • Private pay

Private health insurance and Medicare usually don't cover assisted living services.
