WHAT IS AN ASSISTED LIVING CENTER IN FLORIDA?

An assisted living facility is one where residents are offered help for their daily living needs. Typically for older Americans, assisted living centers offer care by others in a community environment, affording the residents the care they need in a safe and event-filled environment.

Assisted living facilities have become popular as an alternative to nursing homes. Nursing homes typically were for low-income residents, paid for mostly by Medicaid, and received a negative connotation as a place not much more than a glorified hospital, where residents were cared for in their rooms, rarely interacted with others, and rarely left the nursing home.

Assisted living is now the fastest-growing long-term care option for seniors. Its mission is to treat all seniors with compassion and dignity, giving them a home-like environment in a community-like atmosphere that encourages independence. While the level of care and amenities at assisted living communities varies, assisted living facilities thrive on interaction between residents, between family members who visit, and between the caregivers, ensuring residents have a great quality of life as they age.
