Many seniors want to be independent for as long as possible. As people age and their health become more difficult, assisted living may be an option. Residents are given the support and supervision they need in an assisted living facility.
Assisted living facilities provide caregivers and trained staff to assist with daily activities. They can also assist with medication intake or administration. They work with the appropriate health care providers to ensure residents' safety and health.
