Senior Assisted Living

 

To begin with, an Assisted Living Facility (ALF) is a housing facility for people with needs that are difficult to manage without the assistance of trained staff.  The amount of care provided by the facility can range from simple daily hygiene to meals and medications.   Specifically, assisted living housing came into existence in the 1990″s as a hybrid elderly care facility that could help people transition from independent living into care that is managed and assisted by trained staff but who do not need nursing home care. 

Assisted living at the very least, might be as simple as managing your medications. Other levels of Assisted Living might be to assist those with disabilities including  limited motor or mental skills.  Other names for assisted living are residential care homes, assisted care living facilities, and personal care homes.  Accordingly, Assisted Living facilities within the United States in 2011 had a National Median Monthly Rate of $3261.
