Assisted living is a kind of senior living that allows senior citizens to live independently but receive the help they need for day-to-day tasks. Aside from the care that a nursing home offers, assisted living communities provide meals, housekeeping, and laundry. They also help residents with personal care and medications, and can arrange social events and hobbies. Assisted living communities also provide transportation and other support services. Some assisted living facilities also offer 24-hour medical care and can help with transportation needs.
