Assisted living isn’t the right option for everyone, however, and with terms like “retirement home” and “nursing home” clouding your search, knowing what is most appropriate can be difficult. For example, if your loved one requires nursing care, or has diagnosed Alzheimer's or dementia that has progressed to a certain point, a skilled nursing facility, in-home care, or memory care community may be more appropriate. Conversely, those who don’t require day-to-day assistance with ADLs may find independent living more comfortable. Our local advisors can provide expert advice on what you can afford and whether or not your city of interest is right for your needs and budget.
