Residential Assisted Living Homes

Residential assisted living homes are private residences that have been converted to care for the elderly who may need some help with certain activities of daily living (ADL's)  but need less help than offered in a full time nursing home.   An ideal candidate is someone who can generally take care of themselves with eating, bathing, dressing and using the bathroom but perhaps needs some supervision and assistance.   Some homes may care for those with dementia or Alzheimer's.  State laws vary but residential assisted living homes are generally licensed and should be run a licensed administrator.

They offer a group living situation with private or shared bedrooms and shared living spaces throughout the rest of the house including kitchen and living room etc.   These homes are usually located in residential neighborhoods.
