FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ASSISTED LIVING
What is the difference between Assisted Living and Independent Living?
Assisted Living is for seniors who cherish their independence but who could benefit from some level of assistance with daily activities. Assisted Living facilities are sometimes referred to as Personal Care communities.
Residents in these communities enjoy the same amenities and care services typically available in Independent Living, but they also receive care that includes support with such tasks as bathing, dressing and taking medication. Residents also have access to a healthy, active lifestyle and plenty of social engagement.
Comprehensive health assessments are often provided prior to move-in to ensure residents receive the precise type of care they need. Apartments feature senior-friendly designs, and the monthly rent is all-inclusive.
The benefits of supportive living in our Huntsville, Alabama, community are countless. Seniors have the opportunity to make lasting friendships with individuals with the same life experiences and enjoy a community and a lifestyle that offers fun, fulfillment, and a sense of purpose.
