Do most assisted living communities have internet access?

My kids have spent many hours getting Dad comfortable with the internet and enjoying social media. I would hate to see him lose that skill and that connection with friends and family.

Most Assisted Living communities leave it up to the families whether they want to purchase internet access and/or cable TV separately, much as one would do in their own home. Generally the communities are all bills paid, with the exception of cable, phone, and internet.

However, many Assisted Living communities are now offering free access via a business center or, in some cases, free wi-fi all over the building. That is a quesion I'd make sure to ask as I toured communities to be sure you choose a place that will satisfy your father's internet requirements.
