Facilities Offer Assistance from Independent to Total Care

You can visit for information about a variety of options for care.

A wide range of personal care assistance can be found at assisted care facilities. For example, independent living can offer living in a seperate apartment, condo, or studio with meals available at a central dining room.

Partial assisted living can offer personal care attendants who are available at the call of a button. A skilled nursing facility can offer licensed nurses 24 hours per day.

Some facilities have a variety of options at one location. If someone starts out in the independent living section a move can be made later to a section that will provide more assistance.

Small facilities or private homes that have been converted to assisted care might have half a dozen seniors or so and personal care aides in a home style setting.
