With a degree of personal services and attention above that of Residential Care and an alternative to Skilled Nursing placement, residents in Assisted Living enjoy all the support services they need in a less restrictive and more home-like setting. "Assistance" comes in the form of help with all the activities of daily living (ADLs), including personal grooming, self-care tasks, and mobility issues.
Residents at this level of care may receive help getting around between meals, activities, clinic appointments, social visits, and their personal residence. Special medication assistance, incontinence management, and additional housekeeping may also be provided if required.
Although residential facilities generally do not provide licensed nursing supervision and personal care, many of the Home's residents require this degree of personal attention in order to enjoy the full benefits of life at the Home. Whether it is a meal served in a room when a resident is ill, help with dressing, or other special needs, the Home provides these services — at an un-reimbursed cost of more than $1.6 million annually — to ensure that all residents enjoy an optimal quality of life.
