What is an Assisted Living Home?
Assisted living homes are homes designed for people who need some assistance with daily activities. These homes are usually located near hospitals, community centers, or shopping areas so that their residents can still have access to services when they need them. Our assisted living homes are family owned and operated, and they are designed to provide a safe, clean environment for their residents to stay in. Assisted living homes are designed to provide basic care for their residents, and they are not intended to replace the need for medical care or the responsibility of a family.
