Assisted living facilities are for people who can still take care of themselves for the most part. They might need (or just enjoy having) some assistance with cooking, daily household tasks like cleaning and laundry, and personal care like showering – but it’s like ordering from a menu… you choose what you want help with. Monthly pricing for this kind of housing is based on the level of assistance you want or need. In general, as a resident of an assisted living facility, you would live in a private living space (like an apartment or condo), and have a private bathroom and kitchen. Couples are generally able to live together. Sometimes these places allow you to have your own car, and almost all of them provide rides to bring you where you need to go like the doctor or the store. You’ll also enjoy a high level of socialization, with organized trips to museums, movies and more.

Nursing homes offer a higher level of daily care, including everything from help getting dressed to using the restroom to getting in and out of bed. You might choose to live in a nursing home if you need frequent or daily medical care, or if your ability to get around has lessened and you feel more secure having people check in on you frequently. Often, family caregivers might choose a nursing home when they feel they can’t care for their loved ones well enough anymore. While this type of living situation offers less independence, you’ll feel really well taken care of with round the clock care.
