Video: What is Included in an Assisted Living Community?

Assisted Living communities offer opportunities for enjoyment and relaxation where residents could thrive, paired with the expert, compassionate care Senior Lifestyle is known for. Many of these communities offer lovely outdoor spaces with gorgeous surroundings enjoying a walk with friends or taking in the sun. Inside of the communities, you’ll find the spaces are designed with socialization and recreation in mind, with plenty of cozy places to enjoy some rest and relaxation. These lively interiors are complemented by a calendar of programming, social events, activities, and even classes. We take care to ensure each resident’s enjoying their time with us, while making sure their unique wants and needs are met.


What Are Assisted Living Communities?

Assisted Living communities offer similar spaces and lifestyles to Independent Living communities, but with additional care. These communities offer service and care options such as housekeeping, meal preparation, personal hygiene, medication management, transportation, or if you need help with daily living activities, and more. While our compassionate team members offers expert care, they also understand the value of maintaining independence and choice for our Assisted Living residents, and many of our communities offer comfortable amenities, lively events, and a wide range of programming options for residents to enjoy. Families and seniors can expect a bright, fulfilling lifestyle with a variety of lifestyle choices to ensure the right fit.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Assisted Living?

The ideal candidates for Assisted Living are seniors looking for a vibrant and engaging community, but with a need for a little extra care with acts of daily living, personal hygiene, medication management, or other care needs.

Assisted Living is a great choice for seniors looking for a sense of community, but with a need for additional care.

To see if Assisted Living communities are right for you or a loved one, ask the following questions:

  • Do you need significant health care assistance?
  • Do you have trouble getting around without help?
  • Do you have difficulty managing your own health and wellness, including setting doctor appointments medication management?
  • What is a realistic budget for your retirement lifestyle?

Eligibility Requirements for Assisted Living

The eligibility requirements for Assisted Living communities vary between communities. As a general rule, communities set their own age restrictions, and most communities require that seniors are aged 55 or older, but others set the age requirement at 62 years. We encourage families to reach out to individual Assisted Living communities for specific information about eligibility requirements.

How affordable is Assisted Living?

In terms of price, Assisted Living communities are generally more expensive than Independent Living, but it depends on the community. Utilities, services, amenities, and your cost of living are generally simplified into a single monthly cost, which can streamline expenses.

Each Assisted Living community has its own unique character and services, so costs vary. The cost of your Assisted Living community experience depends on care needs, location, services, and amenities included in the Assisted Living community.

For prospective residents in need of financial assistance, we offer Affordable Senior Living options to help offset the costs of Assisted Living. For more specific information about the costs associated with an Assisted Living, you’ll need to reach out to a community near you for more information.
