Assisted Living
 

Assisted living bridges the gap between independent living and nursing homes. A type of living arrangement in which personal care services such as meals, housekeeping, transportation, and assistance with activities of daily living are available as needed to people who still live on their own in a residential facility. In most cases, the "assisted living" residents pay a regular monthly rent. Then, they typically pay additional fees for the services they get.  Residents in assisted living centers are not able to live by themselves but do not require constant care either.
