Generally, no. The most likely communities to have clergy are religiously affiliated assisted livings like the "Baptist Home."

That being said, most assisted living communites DO have services with religious groups that visit regularly. Conversely, many churches also have ministries that attend to assited living communities. Inquire with your local parish whether there is already a visiting ministry, and if there isn't, inquire about them sending a visiting clergy. For larger churches or popular area churches, you may find that there is a clergy member assigned to a territory whose primary function is to minister to the home-bound.
