Assisted living facilities are group living environments that provide assistance with some activities of daily living (ADLs). Whether they provide nursing services or help with medications varies among states. We recommend that you contact assisted living facilities to see if they can perform all levels of care that are necessary for your best well-being.

In assisted living, people often live in their own room or apartment and have some or all of their meals together with other residents. Social and recreational activities are usually provided. These facilities provide help with ADLs. Some help with care most people can do themselves (like taking medicine, getting to appointments, or preparing meals).
