What is an assisted living community?
Group Outings that allow residents to gain new experiences, travel to local community festivals on community grounds: These are just a few of the opportunities available to residents at assisted living communities. For families who think that assisted living communities are synonymous with nursing homes, it is time to dispel a few misconceptions.
Assisted living communities are just that, assisted living, where residents retain the freedom of choosing activities, meals, outings and other aspects of their life. Residents are typically free of serious mental and physical impairment and only require assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as dressing or bathing, and may walk unaided or require use of a walker or scooter to move about.
