Assisted Living Communities Assisted Living Communities provide  24-hour supervision to seniors who are  independent or who are in need of  assistance, but not in need of 24-hour  skilled nursing care throughout the day  and night. You will find organized social  activities, as well as assistance in the   activities of daily living, such as:  • Bathing • Dressing • Grooming • Toileting • Medication Management • Status Checks • Dining A Helpful Hint:  When making the decision of whether you  want to go into an Assisted Living  Community or Board and Care Home,  please note, Assisted Living Community  rates are generally based on the room  rate as well as the care rate. Whereas a  Board and Care generally provides an  exclusive rate for the room as well as the  care. Be mindful of that in making your  decision.
