What is an Assisted Living Community?
There are several forms of housing options available to seniors. One of the more popular forms of housing are assisted living communities. These communities are licensed by the state they are located in and provide a combination of housing and personalized services designed to meet the specific needs of the residents that live there. Residents are allowed to live independently and make several choices which meet their needs and wants.

What are the costs associated with Assisted Living communities?
The cost of living in an assisted living community varies with each community and will depend on the type of apartment and the services needed by the resident. The fees for assisted living are usually below fees that you would pay for nursing home care or in-home services. When compared to the costs of living in your own home, assisted living is usually less expensive as well. Residents pay privately for the fees and some assisted living communities may accept long-term care insurance to pay part of the overall costs.
