With the senior population growing so rapidly, Assisted living communities are becoming more popular than ever. This is because as people age, they need help with daily tasks they used to be able to do on their own. But what is an assisted living community? It is not a nursing home or subsidized senior housing. Keep reading to learn what an assisted living community is.
An assisted living community is a home for people who need help with activities of daily living like eating, bathing, walking, managing medications, shopping for groceries, and housework. Most communities provide three meals a day, weekly laundry including sheets and bedding, and various levels of care. Most also provide a busy calendar of social activities, games, lectures, bingo, group trips, and shuttle services.
An assisted living community can come in many different shapes and sizes. There are many signal family homes in residential neighborhoods that have been converted into assisted living homes with multiple rooms, but there are also large new construction assisted living communities.
