Assisted Living Facilities
There are many different kinds of long term care facilities out there and picking the right one can be sometimes quite overwhelming. Too many choices and prices coupled with the nagging question.. "Am I choosing the right facility type for my loved one?"..can be hard to navigate. Here is the difference between the most common types of long term care facilities to help you out!
Assisted living Facility - This is what we are.. A facility with a wide range of services, that provides a senior housing solution for senior citizens who do not need the level of care provided by a nursing home, but prefer more companionship and can live independently with minimum required assistance.
Nursing Home - An establishment where maintenance and personal or nursing care are provided for persons (as the aged or the chronically ill) who are unable to care for themselves properly.
