We've made it simple for you to find the best senior care solution for your needs. These 5 steps will lead to the solution that best fits your needs.

Senior Assisted Living Facilities

Assisted living care provides long term care for seniors requiring some form of assistance, but do not require the intense medical and skilled nursing care provided in a nursing facility. Assisted Living Facilities are designed to provide seniors with a safe and secure environment while allowing them to maintain the maximum level of independence.

Some of the services provided in an Assisted Living Facility include: companionship, assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) & Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs), personal care assistance, and medication reminders.

Care at an Assisted Living Facility is covered by Long Term Care Insurance and may be covered by Medicaid. Senior assisted living care is not covered by Medicare & other health insurance plans. These plans cover the cost of skilled medical services and do not cover the cost of the housing or assistance with ADLs & IADLs provided by Assisted Living Facilities.
