Most of the Assisted Living communities do have a lock on the door with caregivers having a master key to be able to get in the room in case of an emergency.

Yes, most of them do for privacy reasons. They want senior to feel like their 'home'/apt is their own and you would naturally lock your door if that is something you did in your home prior. The staff has a key and the resident has a key; most families members are also allowed a key.

My Mom is moving into Assisted Living in Illinois. Colonnade has a lock on her door. If she needs assistance, the staff has a key. She will also have a key to outside building access. The building is locked in evening. If we are out, we will have key to that door and her room key.
