Your assisted living space is your home and if you desire to decorate and bring your own belongings, most facilities will allow you to do so. Unlike a nursing home where your room is similar to that of a hospital, an assisted living space is more like an apartment or condo. That being said you should know your plans for furnishing before you start looking for a facility. The cost can differ depending on whether or not you plan to furnish yourself or not, so you can save expenses by knowing your plan ahead of time. This can be a worthwhile option for those who have the furnishing or can afford to do so because you wouldn’t be liable for any damage or wear and tear that may occur since it’s your property.
