What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a type of residence that provides care for adults who need help with basic daily activities of living. You may also hear these facilities referred to as residential care, long-term care, supportive living, or extra-care communities. Assisted living communities help residents maintain as much independence as possible while getting the additional care they need, offering a rich calendar of social activities and providing services that make everyday life easier and more enjoyable. They also offer peace of mind to residents and their families thanks to around-the-clock caregiving.

There are many benefits to assisted living:

  • On-site therapy and medical care so residents always have help when they need it.
  • Medication management to promote optimal health outcomes.
  • Individualized help with daily needs while maintaining autonomy and independence.
  • Frequent opportunities for social engagement and building personal connections.
  • Assistance with everyday errands and chores so residents are free to enjoy their time.

Who Qualifies for Assisted Living?

Anyone mobile who can get in and out of bed without assistance but could use help with the daily activities of living like bathing, eating, or grooming is a candidate for assisted living.

Assisted living facilities typically require some documentation submitted before you can become a resident. Because facilities are regulated state-by-state, requirements may vary by location. However, these are the most common:

  • Healthcare provider evaluation outlining the level of care needed, current medications, diagnoses, and immunizations.
  • Proof of a recent tuberculosis test, often obtainable through your local pharmacy.
  • Power of Attorney, living will, and advance directives so caregivers are aware of financial and medical preferences should they need to make decisions on the resident’s behalf.
  • Insurance information, including Medicare and Medicaid identification numbers, if applicable.
