Assisted living centers provide assistance with daily activities such as eating, bathing, dressing, housekeeping, and the administration of medications. They may also provide limited medical care.
An assisted living center may be a good fit for a surviving spouse or dependent that cannot live alone, but has the ability and desire to maintain independence.
The choice of an assisted living center should be carefully thought through and involve other family members. Visit the center several times, at different times of the day if possible. Talk to both staff and residents, and read any information available about the center. The center should be licensed by the state and comply with all state and federal regulations.
