Assisted Living

596

Published on

Assisted living is a type of residence for seniors who may need help in managing certain basic daily living activities such as cooking meals, bathing or dressing themselves, doing laundry, or taking medications. As opposed to a traditional nursing home, assisted living is for people who need some specific services or a basic level of supervised care but are otherwise free of serious mobility, mental or health-care issues.
