My wife [name removed] has been in Assisted Living facilities for the past ten years. No facility has been as comprehensive in their care and genuine in their compassion. I have complete confidence in [name removed] and her team.

Atria Mount Pleasant
4.9

Our first impression of Atria was how beautiful everything is - the setting, the layout, furniture, and all. Now that we've been here close to two years what we treasure the most is the warm relationship between staff and residents, the informality, and responsiveness to all our needs.

Mount Pleasant Gardens Alzheimer's Special Care Center
5.0

We chose this community because of the homey feeling. We also like that the residents all have the same diagnosis. They have more freedom here and it does not seem so institutionalized. they have a courtyard that they can go out and visit whenever they want. The room sizes are great, my mother in law has a corner room so its a little more spacious, but all the rooms seem to have great storage. The food was good, she does not complain so she seems happy with it. Our favorite part about this facility in general is that we know she is safe. I told her I would not put her anyplace that I wouldn't go and I would move in here in a minute. It is great for peace of mind. I have recommend this community.

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. Staff can assist residents with activities of daily living like dressing, bathing, and medication management. Assisted living is also a good option for seniors seeking more socialization. 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
