Assisted Living Environments
An Assisted Living Facility is a long-term care option that provides individuals personal care and assistance with daily activities as needed.
An Assisted Living community provides housing, meals, housekeeping, medication management, transportation, and social activities. Many facilities also have Specialized Care Assisted Living Facilities (SCALF) that can provide more specialized support to individuals with dementia. Residents are assessed upon move in, or any time there is a change in condition. The assessment is used to develop an Individualized Service Plan.
The costs for residency in a facility may vary and require private pay, and it is important to get a full breakdown of charges to determine if an Assisted Living long-term care facility is an option.
