Assisted living is a type of community for senior adults who may start to need help or some support with the activities of daily living. People can get help with things like grooming, dressing, toileting and bathing. The goal of senior living is to help people live as independently as possible while still having trained professionals available if necessary.
Are You A Candidate for Assisted Living?
You are considered a good candidate for a senior community if you need help with some activities of daily living, but you are fairly independent. Senior communities are not for people who have complex mental or physical needs.
Benefits of Senior Living
The benefits of senior living are extensive and far beyond what you would actually believe they are. While for the most part you are highly independent, you will be able to get your needs taken care of with help being ready and available should you need it.
There are also plenty of fun activities that you can do in addition to socializing with others in the community. Senior living creates a community where friends gather together for games, meals and socialization of all kinds. There are many enriching programs and a full calendar of events for residents to enjoy.
