My loved one was there for a short amount of time. I would highly recommend them to others for their loved ones. The staff, it being a new community, the clean and fresh smell, and everyone was upbeat are all standouts to me. They were extremely careful during the pandemic, and I appreciate that.

Discover the many ways to pay for senior living

Planning ahead can better position you to make good choices for your loved one’s care in the future. But if your aging family member needs care now, there are ways to finance the cost of long-term care through a combination of approaches.

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is long-term care for seniors who are generally active and independent, but who require increased supervision and help with some daily tasks.

Services and amenities in assisted living facilities often include:

  • Housekeeping
  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Help with personal care
  • Laundry
  • Social activities and outings
  • 24-hour emergency response
