What Are the Benefits of Assisted Living?

When adults are older or have physical disabilities and can no longer live on their own, they may feel scared, stressed or overwhelmed about their changing needs and living situation. Most of the time, these seniors aren’t ready to give up all of their independence to move into a nursing home. They can't afford to hire in-home help, and they may not have family who can help them as much as needed. That's where assisted living comes in.

Assisted living is often the best option for older adults who can no longer live alone or who have trouble doing so. And while moving into assisted living is a major life change, seniors may find that it offers many benefits.
