Assisted living, provides residents with the senior care services they need to live as independently as possible. It allows for residents to live in a home-like setting while having access to assistance as their needs change. These communities vary greatly by size and services offered but some typical services are providing meals, housekeeping and social activities.
The Alberta Senior Citizen Housing Association (ASCHA) is a dynamic, experienced and warm association representing approximately 60% of the seniors living sector in Alberta Canada. ASCHA serves 30,000 + seniors across the province and represents the full spectrum of seniors housing options, including over 2,500 designated assisted living (DAL) units, with an integrated perspective.
Assisted living community costs can vary greatly depending on the resident's needs, location of the community and the size of the room. In 2013 the average rent for an Alberta assisted living unit was $2,798. It is important for the resident to not only consider the care that they need at the time of moving in to the community but that they (or their family) considers what future care they may need.
Assisted living must be licensed under the Supportive Living Accommodation Licensing Act and meet the Supportive Living Accommodation Standards.
The Supportive Living Accommodation Licensing Act requires that the communities are licensed if they provide accommodation for four or more individuals, provide services related to safety or security, and provide one meal a day or housekeeping services.
A Place for Mom is the largest assisted living referral service. We are paid by our participating communities, therefore our service is offered at no charge to families.
