An important consideration when considering assisted living is how long you or your loved one might plan on staying there, and will the facility be able to provide for your needs in the long-term?
Many seniors choose assisted living simply to have some extra help - especially if they had been living alone, and if they have no family, or perhaps a spouse with them to help in the day-to-day tasks of daily living, including household chores, cooking, cleaning, and laundry. Assisted Living can be a great choice to lessen the burdens and stress of daily life.
Seniors may also choose assisted living in large part for the social benefits. Assisted living can offer an immediate social network for seniors who may not have the family and friends available to them to offer the social support they may crave and need.
Seniors in these cases without any overriding serious health issues may find choosing a facility much easier than someone with Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease.
People with serious and progressive diseases need to consider whether the facility will be able to care for their illness or condition as it progresses over time. Someone with PD might do fine in a facility that offers only the basics of care and help - but may find it to be inadequate as they become less mobile and functional as their condition progresses. Same with Alzheimer's - there is a world of difference between a newly diagnosed person with mild symptoms to a person in the advanced stages....and the levels of care can be quite different.

Continuing Care Facilities can be a viable option for a loved one, especially if it will be difficult or undesirable to move them later on....
