What is Assisted Living and how is it different from a nursing home?

An Assisted Living Facility is licensed by the state of Florida and provides help to the residents with their activities of daily living or ADL’s. These ADL’s can include dressing, grooming, bathing, toileting, supervision of medications, and three meals a day plus snacks. In addition, an ALF provides transportation to and from medical appointments as well as arranges social activities and outings. The key difference between an ALF and a nursing home is that an ALF is not allowed to provide complex nursing care or actual administration of medications. Some ALF’s are set-up to handle Alzheimer’s and Dementia residents while others are not.
