Assisted Living Facilities, popularly known as ALF. These facilities are for people needing assistance with daily living activities, but who want to live as independently as possible for as long as possible. The goal is to bridge the gap between independent living and nursing homes.
Assisted Senior Living is not like any of the other senior housing sites on the web. Assisted Senior Living was created by caregivers, for caregivers. We have gathered information from state and federal sources, then combined it with public information to provide one of the most complete resources for seniors and caregivers (new senior care services are also welcome to create a free listing). We give you as much information as possible to help you make your decision.
Residents in assisted living centers are not able to live by themselves, yet do not require constant care either. Such facilities offer help with eating, bathing, dressing, laundry, housekeeping, and assistance with medications. Many facilities also have centers for medical care; although, the care offered may not be as intensive as the care offered at a nursing home.
