What is Assisted Living?

ph_community_assistedlivingMom’s doctor suggested “Assisted Living.”

Now it’s up to you to figure out what that means.

What is Assisted Living? It’s senior housing that includes some nursing care and other supportive services. As a member of LeadingAge and the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA), Providence is part of the movement to promote excellence in senior living. We advocate for accessibility, independence, dignity, and choice for seniors. Providence Assisted Living communities offer the services people need to stay safe and healthy, in an atmosphere that promotes as much independence as possible.
