Assisted Living is a healthcare residence where the clients can receive assistance with activities of daily living, which usually include bathing, dressing, toileting, escorting, laundry, and taking medications if required. Some clients in Assisted Living require no assistance for their activities of daily living while others do require assistance. Also, most Assisted Living communities offer memory care for residents in the early stages of dementia. Staff and at least one medical professional are typically on call 24 hours a day in this setting however intensive hands-on care or nursing care is not offered in this setting. Specific details of care can vary from community to community so it is worth checking independent policies of providers.
