What is assisted living? What types of services are available?
The term “assisted living” can be defined in many ways and may mean something very different at each senior living community that you visit. Typically, two or three meals a day are provided, with the availability (typically for an additional fee) of personal care, housekeeping, and laundry, and other services.
Some buildings which offer assisted living provide up to an hour of care each day, and anything over that time limit requires the resident to either move out, or to hire a private aide. Other communities offer higher levels of care which are not time-limited, and may include full continence care, one and two-person assistance with transferring, full assistance with all Activities of Daily Living, and more. It’s important to discuss any service limitations with the communities you are considering. It’s also important to understand that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has regulations within which each assisted living community must operate, so even if a facility offers skilled nursing on-site, this skilled care cannot be offered in an assisted living setting.
