Assisted Living residences are designed to maintain the independence of older people who are not safe on their own. They provide assistance with activities of daily living (ADL), such as bathing, dressing and taking medication. They also provide socialization opportunities. They do not provide 24/7 nursing care. Care is customized to the resident's needs and wants.
