There are various ways to define assisted living. Assisted living is a very dynamic and versatile situation. There are apartment-style buildings, duplexes, and large campuses. All of these provide different settings and can suit various preferences when it comes to where senior residents prefer to live.
There is a common philosophy that assisted living treats all residents with the kind of respect and dignity that is required; as well as providing and encouraging their independence and freedoms. The beauty of assisted living is that it can easily provide the kind of personal and customized care that is needed for seniors. With a variety of top-notch services, all residents can trust that they will be in good hands and given the level of care that they deserve. From dosing out proper medications, to providing nutritious daily meals, bathing assistance, and even help with dressing for those who need it, staff members go above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of the residents’ lives is improved and taken care of.

While there may be a fear of losing independence by moving into an assisted living situation, residents can expect to keep their independence intact, as well as share their time with loved ones when they want to. Some residents may even choose to have a furry friend move in with them, as many assisted living communities now allow both dogs and cats to stay with residents.
Making the Decision as a Family
Choosing to have a discussion with your elderly family members about
moving before there has to be a firm decision made can help immensely to smooth the transition, as well as maintain everyone’s healthy relationships with each other. By making this kind of decision in a calm setting instead of allowing circumstances such as illness to affect it, both the elderly family members and the rest of the family are able to work together for a better overall result.
When having this kind of discussion among family members, it is crucial to understand what the senior family member(s) want and/or need in their new home setting. Thinking about all of the little things such as if they require assistance dressing, all the way to big ones, such as transportation and the ability to maintain their overall health in an independent manner can be big factors in choosing where your family member will live and spend his or her golden years.
