What Is Assisted Living?
The average Country Place Senior Living resident is 82 years old, female, widowed and previously lived alone.
An Assisted Living facility is a long-term care solution for senior adults who are able to live independently, but require assistance with day-to-day activities. The Assisted Living industry has experienced dramatic growth in recent decades. This expansion is projected to continue as an estimated 10,800 “Baby Boomers” turn 65 each day. As these individuals age many require personal care support services for assistance with:
- Medication Management
Each Assisted Living resident is assessed upon move in, annually or as required by the state in which they reside. Their condition may also be reviewed at their own request or that of a family member, or any time there is a significant change in health. This assessment is used to develop an Individual Care Plan.
Approximately 40% of Assisted Living residents require assistance with three or more activities of daily living.
Assisted Living is an alternative to In Home, Independent Living or Nursing Home care, which is often more expensive and provides a greater level of care than required. More than half of all Assisted Living residents are age 85 or older. The vast majority are female.
There are more than 31,000 Assisted Living communities throughout the United States, caring for nearly one million seniors.
