Assisted Senior Living Facilities
Assisted Living in Los Angeles
Assisted Senior Living Facilities usually refer to a facility that is non-medical and provides elder care for seniors needing assistance with activities of daily living, but not the need for constant care as in a skilled Nursing Facility. Some senior assisted living facilities in Los Angeles offer medical care, but often it is not the same level of care that is found in a Nursing Home. Some places have trained staff on-site during the day hours and less at night (depending on the amount of residents). They are not required to have a nurse on staff. Some assisted living facilities have private or semi-private apartments. They usually have a small kitchen area, handicap accessed bathroom and are a self-contained unit or can have additional bedrooms.
In this type of senior retirement living a resident would not have to be concerned with having to prepare meals every day, these places usually offer three balanced meals a day served in a central dining room. Family members often visit and can dine with their family member. As well as the senior resident visiting with others at the residential care home.
