Care Types Offered
Asbury Village is considered a Retirement Community which provides Assisted Living services. These terms are defined as follows:
Retirement Communities are geared towards seniors who are able to live on their own, without daily assistance, and prefer to live among people their age. This usually means residents are self-sufficient and do not require hands-on care. Think of retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.
Assisted living communities provide supervision, community-style living, and personal care services to seniors who may require limited assistance with the activities of daily living (ADLs). These communities promote independence among seniors who do not require 24-hour skilled nursing care. Seniors who desire an independent setting accompanied by a strong support system and the comfort of some daily assistance would adjust well to assisted living.
