Assisted Living Q & A

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is a long-term care option that combines independence with health and personal care services. In addition to housing, assisted living facilities provide:

  • 24-hour support
  • Meals in a group dining room
  • Personal care services
  • Medication management
  • Recreational activities
  • Housekeeping services

Assisted living is an excellent option if you or your loved ones are facing safety issues in your own home. For example, if you have reduced mobility, you may have an increased risk of falling or not being able to get out of bed by yourself. Alternatively, if you have signs of dementia, you may benefit from living in a community where there’s a team of people to help you stay safe and secure.

In addition to the custodial services of an assisted living residence, a nursing home provides round the clock care to patients with more significant health needs. 

What are the common health needs of a patient in assisted living?

The health needs of assisted living residents vary. For example, though your risk of certain diseases and health issues increase, you and your neighbor may have very different needs. Some of the most common health problems for an aging community include:

  • Arthritis 
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Dementia
  • Osteoporosis
  • Diabetes
  • Falling
  • Obesity and depression

Additionally, as you age, illnesses such as the flu and shingles are more likely to cause health complications.
