WHAT IS AN ASSISTED LIVING FACILITY?
The short answer is a residential facility that provides personal and health care services, 24-
hour supervision, and assistance for the maintenance or care of four or more adults who are aged, infirm, or disabled and who are cared for in a primarily residential setting. Facilities may be licensed to provide two levels of care: residential living care and assisted living care, or just residential living care.
