Assisted Living Communities: Are They Right for Your Elderly Parent?

When it is time for a family member to move to assisted living, caregivers and family members often have lots of questions. Here are the most common ones that caregivers have about finding assisted living.

What exactly is an assisted living community?

An assisted living facility is a community for seniors who cannot live independently. They provide mobility assistance and daily living care for bathing, dressing, toileting, grooming and eating.

What’s the difference between assisted living and a nursing home?

Assisted living does not provide medical care, such as treatment for specific conditions or diseases like Parkinson’s disease, or hospice care.
