Assisted Living Companies

Contemplating and even bringing up the discussion of assisted living is not a topic that many of us want to broach with our parents. My parents still live at home, but I believe in being prepared.


If and when the discussion ever comes up, I want to be prepared with information and answers to expected questions. Assisted living companies are those that provide assistance that enhance independent living. When Mom or Dad need more help, and when I or my siblings are not around to provide it, assisted living companies can provide a number of services.

I'm sure you seen the commercials on TV for a number of assisted living companies. The largest and most popular or well-known assisted living companies include Emeritus, Sunrise, and Life Care Services, just to name a few.

I got online and researched top assisted living companies and accessed websites that provided a variety of data. I found out through my own searches that assisted living companies provide a variety of services ranging from traditional nursing, dementia care, independent living, outpatient therapy, home care, hospice care, and post-acute care.

The fact is, we're all going to get older, and someday we may need a little extra help. Understanding what assisted living companies can offer is the first step in preparing for the future.
