What you may not know: Assisted Living is Not Synonymous with Nursing Homes
Posted .July 24, 2015

Our research suggests that many families believe they need nursing homes for their ailing older loved one when in fact assisted living is the most appropriate option. An assessment by an Advisor or medical professional is the best way to determine the care type needed, but some general distinctions can be drawn between assisted living and nursing homes. For instance:

Assisted living residents are mainly independent but may need help with daily living personal care tasks such as bathing and dressing, while nursing home residents tend to need 24-hour assistance with every activity of daily living.

Assisted living residents are mobile, while those who are bed-ridden require nursing homes.

Nursing home residents generally have a single or semi-private room, while assisted living residents typically live in a studio or one-bedroom apartment.

Nursing home residents require fully staffed, skilled nursing medical attention on a daily basis, while assisted living residents are more stable and do not need ongoing medical attention.
