If you or an aging loved one needs some help in performing daily activities but wants to retain a certain level of independence, an assisted living community can be a fantastic solution to this problem. Assisted living communities ensure that their residents receive the care that they require while still letting residents retain an independent lifestyle and their own private accommodations. Schedule a tour at Bentley Commons if you want to learn more about our assisted living community.

What is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities provide accommodation for people who need some assistance with daily tasks, but do not require the medical assistance that is provided by a nursing home. Assisted living facilities range in size from as few as 25 residents to 120 or more. Typically, different price points will denote the different levels of care that are offered.

Assisted living residents usually live in their own apartments or rooms and share common areas. Residents will have access to many different services, including up to three meals a day; assistance with personal care; help with medications, housekeeping, and laundry; 24-hour supervision, security, and on-site staff; and social and recreational activities. The exact arrangements will vary depending on the state that the community is located.
