Assisted living facilities are often looked at as a last resort and a bad one at that. The negativity attached to the idea of living in an assisted living home has been a universal thought, though many people don’t know much about actual facilities. Assisted living doesn’t mean there is absolutely no more independence in your life and that you’re dictated by a certain schedule and rules. Moving into these facilities shouldn’t be seen as a last resort or the end of the road, it should be seen as a wonderful way to live out your golden years with assistance as needed. You just have to find a good facility, and that’s why reviews are invaluable.
Many places offer assistance as its requested, and let their guests choose with their doctor what works best for them. In most cases a general fee covers the cost of residence, meals, and daily clean-up but a deposit may be required depending on the facility. Individual laundry services may be an added charge, but many places offer daily laundry service for things such as bed sheets and towels. Most facilities include transportation and social groups as part of their package to ensure their guests are not confined to their rooms and have the ability to socialize during the day.
