An assisted living resident is defined as a resident who needs assistance with at least one of the activity of daily life.
A typical assisted living facility resident would usually be a senior citizen who does not need the level of care offered by a nursing home but prefers more companionship and needs some assistance in day-to-day living. Age groups will vary with every facility. There is currently a transformation occurring in long-term care. Assisted living communities are accepting higher and higher levels of care and nursing homes are becoming a place for those who are undergoing rehabilitation after a hospital stay or who need extensive assistance. Many assisted living communities now accept individuals who need assistance with all activities of daily living.
Now in order to certify the disability a patient must have the concurrence of a doctor.Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
