Assisted Living is a senior care option that encourages independence while still helping in certain aspects of an individual’s life. These facilities do exactly what their name suggest and assist individuals in living independently. Assisted Living facilities provide a homelike environment, where individuals can have their own personal space. Residents of these facilities can enjoy a customized care plan that helps them with the activities of daily living that prevent the individual from being able to live alone. On top of this, they also provide a social atmosphere where individuals can connect with other people their age in a secure environment. A good assisted living facility provides all three of the above; a social setting, with medical assistance, and security.
