About Connecticut Assisted Living
An assisted living facility can be a great option for those seniors who need some assistance with daily activities but don’t want or need full time supervision or medical care. An assisted living facility offers basic assistance with day to day tasks but allows residents to remain independent for the most part. This type of senior housing, or retirement home, allows seniors who don’t want to enter into full time nursing home care a safe housing option that meets their needs.
Assisted living housing offers a number of basic services on top of accessible designs in their homes, rooms, and condos. Some basic services that might be available are light housekeeping and meal preparation. Some facilities offer additional services like bathing assistance, but generally, you will be charged extra for extra services. Before entering into an agreement to move into any individual assisted living facility, it’s a good idea to make sure that you fully understand all of the costs involved as well as which services you will and will not be able to receive as you age.
