Assisted Living is a broad term used to describe a type of Senior Housing. It offers 24-hour support services to seniors and Veterans in a home-like environment compared to the more sterile environment found in Nursing Homes. Assisted Living is a good option for seniors and Veterans who are no longer safe or thriving in an independent living situation. Dependent on the part of the country, assisted living may also be referred to as Residential Care, Supported Residential Care, Board and Care Homes, Adult Foster Care Homes and Retirement Communities. Care is provided in a variety of setting, ranging from single-family homes to larger communities with private suites or apartments. Assisted Living care is regulated by the state and therefore the level of medical care that can be provided varies from state to state.
