At SeniorLiving.org, we provide assistance in helping seniors and their loved ones find Assisted Living Facilities. An Assisted Living Facility (ALF) is a housing option that many seniors use. AFLs are a great option for individuals who are in need of some assistance with daily living while at the same time want to live as independently as possible.
An ALF can offer many things to its residents including 24-hour monitoring and security services, medication assistance, on-site healthcare services, daily meals, laundry, housekeeping, and transportation. There are also Assisted Living Facilities that support seniors who have been affected by diminished memory, or physical disabilities. For many seniors it has become difficult or unsafe to drive, which would make things like grocery shopping difficult or impossible, an AFL can assist in this manner also. Assisted living facilities can also support seniors in getting healthcare and taking medications, finances and home maintenance, and shopping and cooking. More advanced care may also support seniors with hygiene, mobility, feeding and other basic daily tasks.
The typical Assisted Living Facility options can range from a house with a few beds and rooms to a large facility with multiple buildings and hundreds of beds. What is available depends on the area being considered. At SeniorLiving.org we offer detailed information of each building in the city or area you are considering. When available, we provide photos of Assisted Living Facilities, the services available to residence and real customer reviews of a facility.
There may be some people who have a negative view of Assisted Living Facilities. They are not nursing homes, but they offer real living options to elderly persons. A person who decides to choose to reside in an ALF may need help with common activities of daily living (ADL) but they still have a desire to live their normal lives- to get out of the facility and enjoy some of the many local amenities in the town.
