What is Assisted Living?
Assisted living centers provide personalized care in a residential environment to senior citizens. They’re for seniors whose well-being necessitates a higher level of assistance. Assisted living promotes a balanced lifestyle as well as social interaction.
What is an Assisted Living Facility?
Assisted living communities are similar to independent living communities in that they provide similar social and lifestyle advantages. They also have services and activities tailored to the needs of assisted living residents. At Grace Pointe, we provide both assisted and independent living.
When Should Someone Move Into an Assisted Living Community?
Below are a few questions you can ask to see if assisted living might be something that benefits you or a loved one:
- Do you or your loved one require help with activities of daily living?
- Do you or a loved one need more opportunities for socialization?
- Would you or your loved one benefit from care coordination?
- Would a maintenance-free lifestyle reduce stress?
- Do you or your senior family member lack access to proper nutrition?
- Can you or a loved one continue to provide adequate care long-term?
- Does a physician recommend assisted living?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone and we are here to answer any of your questions.
