What is assisted living?
Assisted Living communities are designed for seniors who require 24-hour assistance with one or more tasks of daily living. Assisted Living communities provide aid in such tasks as bathing, dressing, housekeeping and eating. Medication assistance varies according to state regulations. Assisted Living communities generally offer activities for residents, transportation and housekeeping services.
What is “senior living?” What makes it different from a nursing home?
Senior living encompasses a range of living options for older adults, including “independent living,” “assisted living,” “supportive living” and “memory care.”Atria communities offer one or a combination of these living options. All provide services and amenities like full-service dining, housekeeping, transportation, 24-hour staff – plus a well-rounded schedule of social, educational and cultural opportunities. Our assisted living and memory care communities also provide discreet assistance with daily tasks like medication reminders, bathing and getting dressed, incontinence care, and getting to and from meals and events. A select number of our assisted living communities also offer services that may include diabetes care, oxygen and breathing treatments, and catheter/ostomy care.
Senior living is a residential community offering services and amenities like a hotel, and help with daily tasks if needed. A nursing home is a medical institution designed to provide advanced, skilled medical care for those who need it.
