What is Assisted Living (AL)?

Assisted Living (AL) is a great option for people who want to remain as independent as possible but need assistance in some aspects of their activities of daily living. 

AL communities offer services such as medication management and light personal care within a supervised setting. Housekeeping, prepared meals and assistance with daily personal care are available. 

AL is known for its focus on group and individual activities and efforts by staff to prevent residents from feeling isolated.
