Resource Category: Housing & Independent Living
The philosophy of assisted living is to provide housing with supports that enables residents to maintain an optimal level of independence. Services are responsive to resident’s preferences, needs and values, which promotes maximum dignity and individuality while maintaining their independence. Assisted living provides housing and support services within a home-like environment to seniors and adults with disabilities who require both scheduled and unscheduled personal services and support.
